Welcome To The Freedom Of Speech! Social Network!

Welcome one and all to the social network website dedicated to all voices. At the Freedom Of Speech!(FOS!) social network website, no matter what you wish to say and no matter how you wish to say it, you will not be illegally censored*.

Freedom Of Speech! posts are called “FOSSIES!” and everyone is encouraged to write their own FOSSIES! and to comment on the FOSSIES! of other FOS! members.

Please bear in mind that any illegal activities that you commit or plan to commit that are posted on this social network website may be shared with any and all appropriate authorities if said authorities legally request this information. The FOS! social network website neither condones, encourages, nor supports illegal activities.

*Freedom of speech in the United States does not include all types of speech. According to freedomforuminstitute.org:

“Although different scholars view unprotected speech in different ways, there are basically nine categories:

  • Obscenity
  • Fighting words
  • Defamation (including libel and slander)
  • Child pornography
  • Perjury
  • Blackmail
  • Incitement to imminent lawless action
  • True threats
  • Solicitations to commit crimes

Some experts also would add treason, if committed verbally, to that list. Plagiarism of copyrighted material is also not protected.”

This list may or may not be all inclusive and you are highly encouraged to consult your local, state, and federal laws concerning what types of speech that are unprotected. If you do not want what you post to possibly be used as evidence against you, then do not post anything that is illegal. While anyone from any country may sign up for a free account, the laws that govern the FOS! social network are those of the United States of America. As such, all members, no matter which country they are in, will receive the same constitutionally guaranteed rights and freedoms as the people in the United States of America.

Our website is moderated by its members. If you are offended by the language here, please speak up. While we don’t encourage offensive language, we will neither censor nor ban it if it protected by the constitution and its amendments*. Please only talk about the subjects presented in the FOSSIES! and refrain from attacking the person posting their comments and ideas.

While FOS! doesn’t believe in censorship, we also don’t tolerate those that take advantage of and/or abuse our constitutional rights and freedoms. If you only post links to other sites, spam, advertising, illegal activities, or any other non Freedom Of Speech! related posts, or talk about subjects not related to the FOSSIE! you are replying to, then your comments will be removed.  Continuing to do so will get you permanently banned from the FOS! social network. If you constantly flag other members for content that is protected speech, then you will be permanently banned from the FOS! social network also.

Feel free to start another FOSSIE! for the subject that you wish to talk about. As with posting comments, all FOSSIES! that only post links to other sites or links that are unrelated to the FOSSIE! subject matter, spam, advertising, anything illegal, or repetitive posting of the same FOSSIE! will be removed and the user will be permanently banned from the FOS! social network.

As a guideline for posting a FOSSIE!, please present the issue you wish to discuss along with one or more solutions to the problem as you see it. Ranting about anything is not conducive to solving problems.
