  1. I was being tongue-in-cheek. Hence the little laughing guy. " " You're saying Love it Or Leave It. That's certainly one form of freedom, heard throughout the ages. Some may say it amounts to freedom . . . to hide in a cave. Sure you can leave The Zucc alone. But will The Zucc leave YOU alone?
  2. Don't Tread on Me . . . Unless It's In Your Terms of Service?
  3. It IS a restriction on free speech. Maybe a legally permissible restriction, but a restriction nonetheless. And a particularly odious one given the company's history. C'mon now Texas where's that rebel spirit. King George or King Zuck it's all the same.
  4. Maybe because you're not American (right?) but you're conflating freedom of speech with constitutional rights. If the guy who originally made the comment said "a blow to our First Amendment rights" then yeah, there's no First Amendment rights on Facebook. But this country was founded by dissidents, and the notion of freedom of speech writ large goes far beyond what the First Amendment guarantees. It's a generalized ethos that we have a free and open society where freedom to say what you will is to be encouraged and never discouraged -- whether guaranteed by law or not. It's part of being a Good American. At least, it was, until the PC cancer started spreading in the last 2 decades or so.
  5. This has nothing to do with free speech, but it's worth mentioning it is utterly nonsensical. 3 a.m. raids by authorities searching for contraband would be hard on the flippers. It surely wouldn't be good to have them at your door, either. The man whose flag you display in your avatar surely understood this. In point of fact, they fought a war of independence over those very ideals.
  6. It's pretty simple really. Saying what you want -- including hawking your wares -- is known as "free speech." Action which limits that activity -- particularly on a medium whose sole purported purpose is communication -- is a "failure" of that ideal. "But it's the law!" is no answer. "The law" which attempts to restrict speech -- particularly in a polity which purports to enshrine freedom of communication above all else -- is also a failing on the face of it. Is it the concept of "freedom" which is confusing to you, or the concept of "speech"?
  7. "Look man my car just ran out of gas. I swear if you let me go I won't tell the police or anything." Ah, what a card
  8. Ok, BUT WHAT'S INTERESTING IS: When were they faked? Recently? Or has a fake box been sitting around 20 years!
  9. Weren't all past auctions going to be archived and available? I can't seem to find them anywhere.
