  1. The Meaning of the Amendment 1: Freedom of Speech, Press, Religion and Petition! This is for all the people not for USA or people who are just too Dumb and or Lazy to look this up! :pipebomb:
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
    First Amendment: Freedom of Speech (1791)

    This clause prohibits the government from banning speech because it does not agree with the message. The Founders saw free speech as a natural right. In Federalist No. 10, James Madison pointed to freedom of speech as a vital aspect of a healthy republic. While originally written to apply to actions of the federal government, the Supreme Court incorporated it into state governments through the Fourteenth Amendment in the case Gitlow v. New York (1925)

    The English Bill of Rights includes a precursor to the First Amendment’s protection of free speech, but while the English Bill of Rights provided for free speech in Parliament, the First Amendment expanded the protection to an individual right of all citizens.

    The Alien and Sedition Acts, which outlawed any speech that was critical of government, presented the first challenge to freedom of speech in the early republic. Supreme Court cases centering on freedom of speech include Tinker v. Des Moines (1969), Bethel v. Fraser (1986), and Texas v. Johnson (1989).

    Freedom of speech in a self-governing society demands that citizen’s act. People like Frederick Douglass, Mary Beth Tinker and Martin Luther King, Jr. have all exercised and fought for the right to freedom of speech.

  2. In that case, you can't claim your content when people post an image of you, because it's freedom of speech.

  7. I didn't read this thread, but is this to do with me moderating your posts/statuses? If so, you can take that copy & paste and shove it up your ass. When signing up to my forum you agreed to my TOS. The content is ours, and I can moderate it how I please, and so can the staff. If you think you can get away with homophobic outbursts then you're stupider than you look. If you tell me to fuck off and expect me not to mess with you, then yet again, you're stupider than you look.

    If you don't want to be moderated, don't give us a reason to.

  19. It's utter crap. I just know how to handle someone like Gohan, something I can say 99% of you don't know yourselves. Staff know this as a fact and have previously sought advice on how to get messages through to him. He has taken as much crap as given out on this site, which most refuse to believe. Everyone is guilty of that, even me. Other than his rare posts of old fashioned homophobia (which all get dealt with), there's nothing he has done that has caused any serious harm to the forum or the users using it. He isn't perfect, but no one is. I often see people throw around these accusations of Gohan getting special treatment. Yes, he gets treated differently, but in no way is it special.
