66. Your point is irrelevant

If you go to Bad Astronomer forum and post that you believe strongly in UFOs, you'll get the exact same couple dozen dedicated UFO deniers who ALWAYS jump on anybody who posts anything having to do with the possibility that UFOs might be for real. And on DU, any post that questions the supreme authority of unqualified "first amendment free speech" rights always attracts the exact same crowd. Just because there were 75 posts from the exact same crowd on my "Limiting Hate Speech In America Is A Valid Debate" doesn't mean anything -- nothing -- except that those exact same people are still set in their hardcore opinion on the subject -- AND that for whatever reason, those exact same people have some strong motivation to hold the line on totally unrestricted right to free speech -- except of course the restrictions that we already have. On the other hand, there were a couple of thousand reads on that article, and what you may not realize is that just because people are not posting agreement doesn't mean that they don't agree or at least consider the ideas valid to some extent -- it could mean that they don't post agreement because people like you and the "regular group" will flame those posts and look to pick arguments. And who want's to debate any valid topic with an absolutist like yourself who totally denies other valid points of view? I might be a rare exception to that rule, because honestly your opinion doesn't affect me at all. Your opinion on the commercialization of hate speech -- for profit, organized, well-funded hate speech -- is very wrong IMO, and there are armies of academics, attorneys and regular "thinking, intellectual" people both in America and around the world who agree 100% with my point of view. You thinking that you and your group of absolutists are somehow "spanking" me is just so amusing I can't describe it. Stay tuned -- the world is growing much smaller. Not many of us would tolerate hate speech in our homes for very long, and with the world shrinking down to size, we're going to put a stop to the hate speech -- at least the commercialized for-profit hate speech -- whether you like it or not.
