Yes, that's what I'm saying, dolt. This is a web forum maintained by a private enterprise, not a public forum. Banning is not equivalent to locking someone away for shouting their opinion from a street corner. Isthmus
can do whatever the hell it wants. If you write a letter to the editor and they refuse to print it have they likewise squelched your right to speak your opinion? No, they haven't. No difference.
It's funny to see you of all people are in favor of banning ...
I'm the one who said banning is unnecessary if people just stop responding to idiots like Tiggs. Your comprehension skills really suck, dude. No wonder you have no use for libraries.
My point is that banning isn't a Bill of Rights issue, nothing more. But I suspect you've never in your life read the Bill of Rights, so it's no surprise to me this distinction would be lost on you.
... considering your only contribution to any discussion is to call people names and ridicule others--never any substance.
Sez you. Over the years, I've contributed more substance to these pages than you'll muster in a lifetime of exercising your remedial cognitive powers. I don't need to defend myself to an inflexible debate flunky like you.
I ridicule those deserving of ridicule. Sorry if I've offended your delicate sensibilities. Oh wait ... no I'm not.
