    Matthew Townsend of Meridian,

    Idaho was charged with 'witness intimidation' (a felony) for merely criticizing Corporal Richard Brockbank and stating he would wage a 'non-violent and legal shame campaign' on a Facebook post. Here is what he said: 'I’m hoping that the REAL reason I was harassed to begin...

    No Point

    People already know what the people are saying anyway.  The only people who shouldn't know are children, and they shouldn't be on those channels to begin with if the parents were really worried about what their children are watching. Seriously, you hear something like, "You...

    Censorship

    Censorship is just a lazy way to avoid hard topics and issues. And censorship from LIBRARIANS of all people is the most disgusting form of censorship. I'd really welcome a day when stories in the news of librarians taking books off the shelves to "protect" people are met with...

    Hate Censorship!

    I have always been of the belief we have absolutely no right to censor what someone, including myself, doesn't like. In my opinion censorship of ANY TYPE is a crime. If you find something obscene or inappropriate change the channel or go somewhere else!

    i do realize that as a public site a certain

    degree of control is needed. what i would wish is that i find exactly what the problem is with my post. the vague "violates guidelines" can mean anything.

    Censorship Can Be Evil

    When our news media fails to broadcast enforcement of Sharia Islamic law in the stoning of Islamic women or the butchery of cutting off body parts, they are supporting the evil through censorship. Our news media is quick to show the struggle of illegal aliens that come to...

    Pornographic? Offensive?

    I recently had my avatar taken down on another site as it was considered "pornographic" and "encouraged sexual banter" (neither term being in their stated policy). Fair enough. It was a site for emotional support so probably didn't fit in and the fact that I admitted it was me...

    expression of freewill is the essence of the

    Stop Censorship

    I was browsing the Internet today,

    and you know what I came across? "Rac1st". Because someone will be offended by someone calling something racist. It's sad what we've come to. I can't wait until poop becomes p00p. It's quite the "vulgar" word, you know!

    The pro-child beaters flagged my story

    and got it removed. This sort of bullshit is all too common on EP and I'm sick of it. If there's anyone who shouldn't have a platform it's people who believe beating (or in their words 'spanking') their children is acceptable in the 21st century.
