Quick Hit

Here's a Clue By Four for those who whine about "Free Speech Rights" on websites that they don't own.

YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH ON A PRIVATELY OWNED WEBSITE.

You also do not have a constitutionally mandated "right" to free speech in much of the rest of the world, or had you forgotten that America is not the only country?

Organizing small-scale DNS attacks or other organized acts of weenietude against websites that you claim have denied you these non-existent rights WILL get you banned.

Get over yourselves. Seriously. Go knit something.

I am unaware of any attack, yet I was banned.
Not everyone organizes into acts of weenietude, I just want their legal department to give me proof of my alleged infractions that resulted in being banned.

I also agree wholeheartedly that free speech has nothing to do with a privately owned website.

Tell me Kari, what led you to my blog? I'm curious, as I don't believe I know you from anywhere.

cosymakes said...

amen.

Kari said...

Actually, I believe I found you on twitter. (Sometimes I click on ppl just to see who they are that ppl I am following reply to or are following, somehow I ended up at you and checked your blog)
If not than some search from my stats on my blog.

Jamie Fritz said...

Kari, interesting. You assume I'm talking about a website or event that you had something to do with then? Being as I didn't mention any site or event specifically. I don't believe I've ever heard of you, or your blog, until I clicked on your info here, so it wasn't in your blog stats unless you're in a webring that I'm in.

Jamie, As I said, "from a search from the stats on my blog, not that I got your blog from the stats on my blog. And as stated before it could have been from twitter. I click through followers of followers sometimes and read profiles, check websites, just to see where I end up.
