We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Subject: What makes spam annoying is not the content, but the lack of choice you had in receiving it. It has nothing to do with pornography, anymore than it has to do with debt consolidation or Viagra.

In reply to: chadi 's message, "It depends on which "public" you're talking about. You do not have the right to insult someone by email. Some people consider pornography as an insult, and most pornographers send pornographic and obscene spams to their emails. (this is just one mere example)." on 23:34:22 11/19/02 Tue

In real life, though, we have to be respectful of each other's freedom of expression, to the degree that we are not coerced or personally threatened. One man in my community, a born-again Christian, has written to our local newspaper, saying that guys who wear boxer briefs visible over baggy pants should be arrested for indecent exposure, because this practice offended his sensibilities.

The police, however, refused to take action, insisting that an article of clothing can't be labeled indecent. Yet you can see the problem that arises here: who decides what is decent or indecent, and who has the right to tell others how they should dress or behave when it doesn't have a direct impact on us personally?
