ADMIN: Free Speech and The Cauldron
« on: March 26, 2015, 08:11:49 am »
When members get upset at the Hosts and Staff for enforcing the rules (especially those rules they do not like), they often complain that we are violating their (US) First Amendment right to free speech. As The Cauldron is not the government or acting for the government this isn't true.  The following xkcd cartoon explains this quite well.

The Co-Hosts are firm believers in free speech and allow quite a bit more differing opinions than many places on the Internet, however, we have our limits and when we reach them we act -- and stopping you from saying what you want on this board does not violate the First Amendment to the US Constitution or your rights. Please don't waste your typing telling us that it does. Thank you.
