    Most of the people complaining about free speech have no idea what they're talking about

    "Protect Fat People Hate's freedom of speech!!!1!!!"

    I've said this before, and I'll say it again: it's not a motherfucking freedom of speech issue

    If you harass other users on a website, the admins have every right to kick your ass off it. If I work at McDonalds, and if I talk shit about them while I'm on their payroll, they can (and probably will) fire my goddamn ass. If you don't like what a website has done: close down your account, stop giving monetary support, etc. Let the website know that you, as a consumer, are pissed off about a policy of theirs. That's how the market works.

      See I agree with you that the FPH thing was not a free speech issue since the reason shown for their ban was brigading other subs and active harassment of people. However, I still think a group has the right to have their own tribe so long as they keep everything in the tribe and don't harass or brigade outside the tribe even if the content is detestable to outsiders. I'm starting to feel like I'm the only person here with this opinion.

        I agree with you on that note. IF FPH was just a sub that hated on fat people, but also just minded their own business, then I would object to the banning. But since they were harassing people outside of their subreddit, I fully support their being banned.

        As Evelyn Beatrice Hall said, “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it”.

        Yeah, I agree with your notion. After all, this can be issue with controversial topics. The line of hate speech I have learned can be quite shady at times...
