18 - Freedom of Speech.
Freedom of speech is not using vulgar words which are offensive to others, calling members names like idiot. Would you want to be called an idiot? Of course not because it hurts... That's why we have to censor, avoid using vulgar words. We have been given freedom of speech but it doesn't mean we can say anything, even those offensive things... We have to be responsible in using this freedom, we have been given. Freedom doesn't mean we can do whatever we want: we can’t punch the person we hate because we have freedom... That's a big NO. Remember, freedom, our freedom is not absolute... Freedom is coupled with responsibility!!!!!!
Freedom of speech on Numanme.co.uk no you do not have absolute freedom of speech at Numanme.co.uk. Your freedom of speech is limited by the Numanme.co.uk rules. If you can't handle that, then this is not the forum for you. There are plenty of other forums out there where there are no rules or where the rules are not enforced at all, where people flame each other left and right. Numanme.co.uk is not one of those forums. The rules are clear and fair. Without them, this place would just degenerate into something similar to Other Boards, Numanme believes with the proper Moderators and with intelligent thought out posts by its members, and without inflammatory remarks the forum will flourish.
