    Stop being sooks, FIFYs aren’t post editing, they’re just a joke, there is no actual attempt to misrepresent your comment.

    I’ve done a few and never been pulled up on it. It’s definitely over-moderating.

    Like section 18 of the anti discrimination act?

    Or is that different because you interpret it as being about "hurt feelings"

    I'm not responsible for PJ's actions.

    It is.

    But that just protects popular speech.

    Free speech may not be neutral. Someone elses freedom of speech may silence another. If i followed you around with a megaphone whenever you were in public yelling over the top of whatever you wanted to say i would just be practicing freedom of speech. However it would limit your own.

    Its very simplistic to say what you just did.

    s18 has nothing to do with libel, defamation or incitement

    Genuine discrimination is dealt with elsewhere in the anti discrimination act

    Well, no. That would probably be harassment

    If it's legal I am most certainly in favour of free speech

    What evidence do you have to support your claim that the NY Times is “biased” besides the rantings of Trump, Yiannopoulus and Fox?

    so free speech can be limited by laws ? if its harassment to walk around shouting on a megaphone why not leaving mean internet comments?

    arent they both an attempt to shut down a person's free speech

    say the above mentioned death threats sent to the academic. isnt that clearly an attempt to intimidate someone out of speaking their mind.
