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.

Also, you can start slipping down the slope of "hate speech = crime." If we censor words or ideas because they may lead to violence, we begin to impose subjective moral values on free speech--which rarely if ever actually prevents crime. (NT)Mr. Green Jeans00:51:31 11/26/02 Tue
