And besides, you are blowing the First Amendment out of proportion. First off, it isn't really you can say whatever you want, because you can't. Need I bring in the "yell FIRE in the theater" arguement? Also, how you are using the First Amendment doesn't apply to school either. You can't go around saying bad things about people left and right (and I'm talking dangerous things, not just insults).

Eh, I'm getting a little off the subject at hand, here. When you joined, I believe that you had to agree to the rules that the staff set, which includes the no flaming rule. There are many good reasons for this rule. One, it disrupts discussion quickly. Two, we are trying to protect the "community" part of the community. If everyone here was a flamer, the community wouldn't be any good at all, and everyone would hate each other. Also, flaming is just childish, and is an unwanted thing among many people.

And, for tl;dr purposes:
We do not stop you from voicing your opinions. It is when you put down and degrade others that we do not tolerate. It is that insuting that gets people hated and eventually banned.

Times today are just as bad what with the video game market being made up of 80% first person shooters that are 80% brown and 20% black and 100% bloom.

Dorino, you are not just someone who disagrees. I am someone who disgrees. You are someone who hates everyone, and hates the staff, just like Pikablu. And just like what seems to be about 75 percent of this forum.

*boot kicks Dorino for "gosh you guys, this is actually James cracking down and you still have problems with it"*

So that's saying, "You can say whatever you want, but you will be punished for flaming"? One, that means that you still don't have full, 100% free speech (freedom to say whatever you want without being prosecuted), and two, that statement you made contradicts itself.

he meant you can say what you want if you have a plausable objection and without offending people

and who the hell wants 100% freedom?

Apparently I need to re-iterate this to you, BMP.
When you signed up on this forum, part of the agreement was that you would follow our rules. If you do not follow them, then you'll be banned. This includes the no flaming rule.
This is not a courtroom, BMP. We don't have to go by the rules that staff has set. Every school, business, and just about anywhere else has a set of rules or suggested ettiquete, and the sooner you learn to follow them the better it will be in life.

It's not like all Americans have full 100% freedom of speech. Plus, the server's in Austria or something, not the US.

@Big JM: Spare me your conformist way of thinking. By your logic, Martin Luther King, Jr. shouldn't've fought for equal rights.
@yoshi_skier: But the majority of the members are from the U.S.
