in reply to Do Not Feed the Trolls!!!

Censorship is when someone else decides - on my behalf - that I cannot read something. If I put something like this in my personal CSS, it's just like avoiding gossip magazines at the newsstand: a choice, whatever truth they might contain. Which may apply for others, or not.

perl -ple'$_=reverse' <<<ti.xittelop@oivalf

Io ho capito... ma tu che hai detto?

    If the censorship is forced on you by others, I pray for you. If the censorship is forced on you by yourself, I call you an idiot.

    Up to you.

      If the censorship is forced on you by yourself, I call you an idiot.

      ...and the great thing about that? We don't have to care!

      $h=$ENV{HOME};my@q=split/\n\n/,`cat $h/.quotes`;$s="$h/." ."signature";$t=`cat $s`;print$t,"\n",$q[rand($#q)],"\n";

        That's the definition of idiot. If idiot cares being called so, then is not an idiot.

      You introduce a new concept -- forcing -- that's absent in my consideration. But the fact is that there's no forcing in it: if I freely decide to ignore noise, I'm not being forced either by others or by me.

        If that's what turned you off, please allow me to rephrase:

        If the censorship is put on you through any way by others, I pray for you. If the censorship is put on you by yourself through any way, I call you an idiot.

    Censorship is when someone else decides - on my behalf - that I cannot read something.

    Actually, sometimes that's just called "editing" or "moderating".
