Freedom — After discussing your post with other editors, I’ve decided not to block your IP address. We value a range of opinions on this website and we make every effort to allow for a liberality of rhetorical flavor. However, we will not let anyone use OUR website as a platform to criticize NARSOL, our affiliates, or the volunteers who give of their time and energies to assist us in this effort. Nor will we allow it to be used as a means to advertise for some other organization’s website. You will not find promotions for Pepsi on Coca-Cola’s website (not for very long, anyways).
We value everyone’s opinion subject to our editorial oversight and discretion. We have no duty whatsoever to publish anyone’s comment. This space belongs to NARSOL and NARSOL will determine what populates this space. The First Amendment provides for a great many rights, but forcing someone else to publish your message is not one of them.
