    Excellent point. I would say that a troll forum cannot exist without free speech and yet a free speech forum cannot exist without trolls; however, this thought completely ignores pizza.

    People come here because they can post anything and get away with it assuming it has to do with actual speech.
    Saying "any old free speech webforum" implies there exists other free speech webforums for this to be an old concept. I can think of no other community in which moderators do not bow down to the current of mob rule and limit free speech. I don't see this as common in the western sphere.

    • Q: Why is it the forum does not allow spam bots & manual spamming?
    • A: It's not actually a person making a statement in response to anything, IE speech.
    • Q: Why doesn't the forum directly facilitate criminal activity?
    • A: It's has nothing to do with the discussion of topics, IE the purpose of a forum.
    Trolls get kicked out of almost every online community, so much so it's a matter of pride. That doesn't occur here. Is this because it is formed by trolls who are forced to submit to free speech principles out of necessity? Or was this forum founded on free speech principles b/c the trolls that founded it appreciated them due to their experiences?

    Chicken and the egg.

    I refuse to call us a free speech forum because I do not want to give social justice retards the wrong idea that it might be cool to hang out here.

    Let me get right to the point-

    Despite what you have hoped, this forum is not the venue for you to share your boring and inane political views.

    All I know is that EDF is one of the best gay/autism support forums on the internet.
