I dislike how people distort the concept of freedom of speech to make profanity appear permissible in a dignified environment.

The point made is that there's a censor on the forums. In case you didn't notice, I got around it.

I'm confused now. I thought the point here was that censorship should not be established because of freedom of speech. If your point is that you got around the system, then how are we supposed to respond to this other than "okay?...good job." ?

No, by pointing it out I was just saying it's being censored. Obviously, if someone doesn't believe in censorship then the thing being censored does become a bit of a symbol for it.

But don't get me wrong, I'm an honest guy, I was showing off too.

FREEDO, you've always demonstrated that you have the best interest of this site, and its success, as being personally important to you, so i think Juggle would be pretty leanient on anything you might do.

I didn't. I copied and pasted that blindfolded and did not read it.
