Don't like the show then change the channel. Don't like the song change the station. Don't like the movie turn it off. Now it is "I did not like what was said but I kept reading it anyway and am complaining because I am indignant because you said it and I read it. Gads.
On the contrary, I think most of us like the song/show/whatever that has been started. Most of our complaints are about whistling one's own tune, different than the one started, in order to hijack what has already been started.
Freedom of speech? Try yelling 'FIRE' in a theater. The rules have been set forth here. Don was good enough to warn us all of consequences if we stray away from the rules. Sounds to me like the tune has been started, to use your analogy, and we can all work together to make a good song great. As set forth in Don's post, some songs will not be tolerated. So... if you don't like the song, turn the station. Like it or not, we live by their rules while on this site. Their site, their rules.
Rogdcam, I get your point. I really do. But we have rules in society for a reason. As a semi-solution, perhaps SCF could create another category. Perhaps name it "Back Alley of Calcutta". No rules. No policing. No subjects off-limits. No clothes? No problem. Perhaps someone could suggest such an SCF addition to Don. I honestly say this only partly tongue-in-cheek. I already know that I will change that channel as it won't be to my liking. Others? They can make their own choices, of course.
