Free Speech explained for the 9th time to abusive crackpot Simon Hodges

By Tom Winnifrith | Thursday 15 June 2017


For the 9th time - the first perhaps for our many new readers - I feel the need to explain what free speech really means.  I do this for Simon Hodges, a poster here, who seems to think that we are obliged to approve & publish his comments  which are defamatory and in some cases just so unpleasant that I do wonder for his twisted little mind. Mr Hodges you can leave my wife and father out of it and may your soul burn in hell. Guess what: I am brave enough to write in my own name and I run the website so can say what i want. Mr Hodges, who being a worm tries to post anonymously, this is for you... 

Those who do not like me or want to post lies about this website, want to suggest that we write under orders from Mossad, the wicked Jews, Chris Potts, Lucian Miers, Evil or Donald Trump  can go post such tripe on numerous sites. Those who wish to attack me for being Jewish, gay, a drug addict or a drunk can do so on numerous sites although for the record I am none of the above.

But I am under no obligation to publish such piffle here. Simon Hodges and other other morons have plenty of other forums to rant on about their latest conspiracy theory. But I have no obligation to publish such lies even though I support free speech. The cartoon below should explian this point in terms simple enough even for Mr Hodges.


We hope that this explains the concept of free speech to Bulletin Board Morons.
