But hi is off topic.
We have nothing, yet, in Swedish law that limits the freedom of
speech based on being on topic or not. I usually tell him when he's
too far off limit, and he always respects my request. Good enough
But we all toghether are in a Fidonet Echo Conference and this
conference is ruled by:
1) A general policy
2) A specific policy (where available)
3) Conference specific rules.
An these rules are "Super Partes" they rules over the specific
country rules as usual for an international network.
You are the moderator of fidonews and you (or someone before you)
wrote the rules that are reminded to all of us periodically, this
is the core of your rules:
The purpose of this echo is the discussion of recent articles (within
the last two weeks) in the Fidonews publication.
Discuss only articles printed in the Fidonews Publication. A certain FB>amount of straying from this is however expected and encouraged.
So, how many times mr.Lofaso followed these rules?
Unless for you "a certain amount of straying" for you is "always FB>straying". :P
Freedom of speech is a binary freedom, like every other freedom.
Either you have it or you don't. As soon as you apply even a minor BF>restriction, that binary goes into NOT -- hey presto, you no longer
have it at all.
You should talk about certain arguments in the proper echoes, Sysops
have even three chat conferences, other conferences with the topics FB>usually used by mr.Lofaso are available for standard echo conference FB>users, so again why he is writing off topic messages in the wrong
You have the freedom to speech about everything also if I don't like
your arguments (Voltaire docet) but you have to do it in the proper
area with the proper terms IMHO.
The same goes for every freedom you can think of. Either you have
it or you don't. There is no middle way here, you only are
manipulated to think so...
Freedom without rules is called anarchy. ;)
And Anarchy is always wrong.
I really like the way you defend freedom and how you feel about it,
but rules are necessary if you want to respect the freedom of
