    If the subject matter violated the standard then it should be removed. My question would be - if the standard was relaxed, what was the justification?

    The argument surrounding the 'should it stay or should it go' is useful in highlighting the problem with censorship if the rules are applied unevenly - either emotionally or politically. The opportunity should be taken to confront the defenders with demands they've made, or support they've given, to remove items or language that they deem offensive.

    The lefties put it up and the righties took it down three times. Libs believe they have the right to offend since they are seeing life from a higher state of being. But in reality, they are just high.

    Liberals have no problem infringing on others rights, it is just theirs and their pets they want protected. Your rights are not important unless you agree with them. The entire basis of any of their ideals is that ONLY the people they choose have ANY rights and that ANY means to achieve their idea is acceptable mass assault, mass destruction even mass murder and genocide. Just ask a Branch Davidian.

    ...or the bakers who were given a $135,000 fine and a gag order for not baking a cake.

    You said speech will not be censored in public and I gave an example of how it censored in public.

    Nope you are just a desperate person who needs to feel like they have a won their argument. I am not here to assuage your fragile ego.

    Ego has nothing to do with it. If you were right the painting would still be there.
