I just purchased IPR. We have a vast number of archived posts. Past owners have attempted to filter out libel, slander, overtly criminal posts, material that makes no sense at all, and the like. If you think we have missed something, please speak up. On the other hand, note that we are in the United States of America, not some European backwater. America has rigid support for freedom of speech. Your owner is not going to travel to Europe, so you cannot threaten me with European laws. If some of our freedom of speech contradicts your laws, you have our sympathies and the hope that someday you, too, will live in a free country without needing to relocate.
On the other hand there is a very recent campaign to ‘deplatform’ people whose speech has become unpopular. Instead of disagreeing with them, or ignoring them, deplatform advocates want to make it impossible for unpopular speech to reach the public, by denying them a platform.
To those advocates, I say: Deplatforming is UnAmerican to its rotten core. Some of you have heard the line: We keep our country free with five boxes. The soap box. The ballot box. The briefcase box. The jury box. The cartridge box. When you scheme to deny people the soap box and thence the ballot box, you are making use of the other boxes more likely. That’s a bad idea. You should stop.
