I participate without trolling, and my Karma goes to hell - every post I make ends up in the toilet. Nice to know that when you make logical arguments, and try to express your opinion - your modded into oblivion. Perhaps if I made racist claptrap statements, my karma would be excellent again. Better idea - how about I don't even bother?

Trolls are harmless and fun (0)

If you sincerely believe in censorship, then you're much worse than a troll. You represent a clear and present danger to our freedoms. I prefer to believe you were trolling with that nonsense. And besides, only those comments were modded down, as they should be.

Fuck censorship and anybody who tries to impose it.

Sure - I'll bite. I was posing a logical guess at what the government was going to try as a legal strategy. Attempting to arrest anyone based on them just saying things is always a slippery slope. People should be able to say things in public - offer viewpoints to the larger crowd to encourage public discourse. It's really sad that my comment was taken as CONDONING the censorship of speech - as that was as far from my intent as I could get. I guess I can see it from both angles - the filmmaker made a film that he knew people wouldn't be thrilled with. However, he DID have the write to make it. I guess I would feel better about it if he hadn't hidden the film's true intent from the actors/actresses who started in it.

I took that moderation down in good spirits - the ones that I've NOT been getting is where I post a view without arguing someone dumb or some other shit - and I get bombed to -1 anyway. Fuck THAT shit.
