    I'll happily fight to the death to protect the right to free speech.

    Because it's a fucking right.

    I did, I know what they are addressing but this is insane, regardless of what they are trying to do.

    Whoa...........you got us with that one! I'm pretty sure nobody has any desire to "try and deny" that completely unsubstantiated negative.

    BTW, the correct term is Democratic party. Did you know that?

    Is it?
    As far as I'm concerned that isn't anything Democratic about the party anymore so I WILL not call them that. Does that chap your ass or something?

    Does it chap my ass? No.....it just demonstrates that you have no interest in dealing with reality. This nation is made up of people with differing opinions and ideas about things. Your unwillingness to consider the opinions and ideas of a huge segment of the population speaks more to your failings than the condition of my ass.

    According to their full report, possible "abusive" speech that they feel should be banned includes:
    Leaving hurtful messages online:
    "LEAVING IMPROPER MESSAGES ON ONLINE MESSAGE BOARDS OR SENDING HURTFUL AND DAMAGING MESSAGES TO OTHERS;"
    Flaming people online:
    ""FLAMING" (HURTFUL, CRUEL, AND OFTENTIMES INTIMIDATING MESSAGES INTENDED TO INFLAME, INSIGHT, OR ENRAGE);"
    "Happy slapping" (a 2005 meme that the befuddled Senators appear to mistake for a current problem):
    ""HAPPY SLAPPING" (RECORDING PHYSICAL ASSAULTS ON MOBILE PHONES OR DIGITAL CAMERAS, THEN DISTRIBUTING THEM TO OTHERS);"
    Trolling online:
    ""TROLLING" (DELIBERATELY AND DECEITFULLY POSTING INFORMATION TO ENTICE GENUINELY HELPFUL PEOPLE TO RESPOND (OFTEN EMOTIONALLY), OFTEN DONE TO PROVOKE OTHERS);"
    Exclusion of people:
    "EXCLUSION (INTENTIONALLY AND CRUELLY EXCLUDING SOMEONE FROM AN ONLINE GROUP)."​

    Wow. Just...wow.
