Discuss  Free Speech Guaranteed On Public Web Sites Can we simply say whatever we want anywhere we want online? Are there laws that govern online 'speech' or do we merely say what we want and be free of the consequences. What is your view?

The way I understand this is that the USA Constitution says those of us who are USA citizens have free speech. Since the Internet is a world wide web and anyone anywhere can read or write things it is not guaranteed by the USA constitution. Therefore one should reason that they do not and should not expect to have the freedom of speech on the internet.

I know somebody who was taken off facebook for putting a daily bible quote on.

Considering some of the foul language that goes on facebook, I think that it's terrible for facebook to restrict somebody's freedom of speech, whilst allowing other things that certainly offend most people to continue unchecked.

I have seen a lot of places that I no longer visit because of the language. I choose to find places that do not have a lot of foul or obscene language.

One thing I feel needs to be done is hold media corporations responsible for what they send to all their subscribers. I've gotten wild fire rumors only to learn later it was false. Their such a rush to be first with something new that they're willing to tweet, email and blog something even if its not like verified. Sometimes they'll say something like 'an anonymous source', I mean that could mean anyone - something just made up.

Problem is how do you police the entire internet for everything everyone says? Its not like a newspaper or political party that can be focused on because views online can be published anytime all the time.
