Actually, this board is subject to the laws and regulations of the United States. Also, it IS available to the general public because it is an OPEN forum. ANYONE can provide input. Even ignorant people like Steve Jones that claimed, falsely, that cutting a cable in Texas is a felony. If one doesn't have a computer they can go to their local libary. Have and have not is NOT a legal test to determine if something is public. Every business is "open to the public" and they are not govermentally owned. Gee, one who believes in FREE SPEECH is now labled "nuts". Tell that to the families of those sailors who gave their lives so you and I can enjoy such freedom. Your logic is flawed. Free speech is just that... free speech WITHOUT censorship. Please prove me wrong that this board stands BEHIND the 1st Amendment. They don't. They believe in censorship.
