There is seemingly a large, overwhelming mass misunderstanding of the rights granted under the First Amendment of the United State Bill of Rights (and, well, all of the amendments for that matter, but I digress). So, in order to help out my fellow internet goers who love to claim a violation of rights, yet have probably never read the Bill of Rights in their lifetime, I present to you: The First Amendment: The Moar You Know Here is the First Amendment, word for word: And once more, for emphasis: Let me explain this to you. The First Amendment protects you from the United States government from passing laws which restrict your freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the right to assemble, and the right to petition the government. In no way does this affect private establishments. Public schools are usually included along with the government, since they are funded and ran by the governments. You have every right to go into a public place and say whatever you want, within established levels reason. You DO NOT have the right to go onto privately owned message boards, say whatever you want, and expect the United States Bill of Rights to protect your posts from deletion or editing. This is not to say that owners or staff members of such boards should happily censor everything to their heart's content, but it is far from illegal, or far from disallowed by the Bill of Rights. It's the same thing in public places: you can't go into a restaurant and start insulting people without expecting to be asked to leave. Sure, you won't be able to be arrested for it (meaning it's not illegal), but there's no law stating that the restaurant owner has to allow you stay there. It's also not illegal for him to tell you to get out of his establishment, either. The same principles apply to the internet. Of course, this only applies to people in the United States. Your laws may be different if you reside in a different country, but they still will not affect how you are allowed to post on TFW2005.com A staff member's job on a message board, and certainly TFW2005.com, is to provide a place to discuss a subject or hobby peacefully, or at the very least, within it's established set of rules. Decisions are made in order to maintain this environment, within a certain level of reason. We are all here to enjoy a hobby, and in our case, it's giant f'ing robots. But if you are a knucklehead and break the rules, you will be dealt with. There is no Constitutional Amendment that will protect you. Thank you, and have a good day. P.S. Please read The Rules for further clarification.
