Can absolute free speech be a thing? · 6:38am Jul 19th, 2020

Because I'm not sure if banning certain speech gets rid of it. It just tends to go underground. Human beings are not perfect, malice, and disdain for others will always be with us.

We would be perfect if we were something like the Borg. However, I find the concept of being something like the Borg as incredibly evil since it rids us of our free will. I don't like the concept of the Conversion Bureau fan fiction series for this very reason, it rids us of our humanity.

On freedom of speech vs. freedom from hatred · 6:26pm Jul 13th, 2016

With the presidential election coming up in the US, we've all seen the tempers fraying and the shit being slung by both sides. My American readers should know this better than anyone. Whether you support Hillary, feel the Bern, or believe that the Trump can't be stumped, you can't deny that this is an election that has had more than its fair share of vitriol, anger and bitterness.

On Pride & LGBT+ · 5:43pm July 1st

Hey, guys! It's been a pretty minute since I've posted anything on the site, and given some recent events that have happened, I've decided to go ahead and put an end to my hiatus. So with that brief little intro out of the way, let's dig deep, shall we?

Free Speech And Why Limiting It Works For It's Perpetuation · 2:00am Jul 18th, 2020

Hello, this is my first ever blog on FiMFic and it is very much inspired by my recent participation in comment chains under Titty Sparkle's blogs about current events.
I am strongly interested in preservation of free speech and human rights, it's a basis of my beliefs and views about the world. I want to present my thesis that limiting the extent of free speech is important towards extending and maintaining it.

Somehow this has to be addressed? · 4:27pm July 25th

Just wanted to post a quick reminder that whenever you see somebody post something such as:

"Hey by the way, the supreme court ruled that things like foalcon are protected under the 1st Amendment, so they can't ban it from the website!"

If You Value Free Speech, Please Read This · 7:44pm Aug 31st, 2018

So, just in case you hadn't heard, the EU will be voting on the controversial and potentially dangerous Article 13 on 12 September. In case you don't remember from the last time this was an issue, this would require platforms to screen and remove copyrighted material from their pages. As you might guess, this would be an absolute travesty for fan culture at large. Worse still, it could very easily turn into a machine for censoring or suppressing speech on the Internet. So please, if you're in

A Discussion About Free Speech and the Rise of Nazi Hysteria · 4:43am Jul 22nd, 2020

I lied. It’s clickbait. It’s really Fanfiction Reading Update #180. There’s enough political shit and wanting to start civil wars in everyone else’s blog posts. Go read theirs or Knighty’s, which started all this, if you want to dive into what will eat the next six months of this site’s life. I, meanwhile, will talk about horse words one last time before the partisans knock down my front door.

Of extremism; why hands-off moderation is lackluster moderation · 11:15pm Jul 10th, 2020

The fandom has a nazi problem, and it is aggravated by moderators not taking a stance against it. 

Moderating is hard. It involves waltzing between building and keeping afloat a space dedicated to a shared pastime, and managing the people navigating it. And often, both come clashing, and sometimes crashing down.

And what about Free Speech? · 12:45am July 5th

Content-warning: the most recent fimfic drama, foalcon.

Bias warning: I am against foalcon being present on the site.

Just to get it out of the gate, I'm not directly addressing the drama. It's tangential to this, but paradoxically, also essential. What I'd like to offer are some points that go against the defense of foalcon, and its presence on fimfic. As I understand it, there is one major point that is constantly brought up:

Fighting For Internet Freedom · 1:09pm Aug 2nd, 2017

There is a site called Battle For The Net which has a lot of resources on how to contact your local representatives through social media, e-mail, and even over the phone to let them know you want a free and open internet.

If you have some time, look to the left side of the site where there is a box that says 'send a letter' and either type your own letter or send the pre-written one in the box to your local representatives.

Oh YouTube, You Card You · 12:17am Aug 2nd, 2017

Now YouTube has just decided to delete YouTube channels and Google accounts that are 'controversial'. Their definition of 'controversial' is pretty broad; comedy, news, anything that goes against what mainstream media says, and more!

Isn't the future looking grand? :')

P.S. Facebook, Twitter, and all of the other social media sites have pretty much taken the same stance.
