>The problem is that I have a very high intolerance for censorship.
Which is one of the things that keeps LWN's comments worth reading and means it is increasingly one of the few sites where I still read them regularly (because unfortunately this editorial approach is becoming more and more that of a minority. Please do stick to it.)
'Slashdot' was concentrating so hard on being blinkered, pathetic, and puerile I actually thought his comments were kind of funny (in a way he no doubt never intended).
I mean, seriously:
>Now, would you rather be killed or be raped?
You can bet any grown woman will have come across the 'clueless-idiot-stuck-in-a-70s-timewarp' troll before, either sincere or otherwise (the jury is still out on this one).
But still, I prioritize anti-censorship because as an adult it is of the utmost importance be given the opportunity to make up my own mind - which is as good as anyone else's - about what I read and decide how I'm going to deal with it myself, and this goes hand-in-hand with accepting that I will read difficult and upsetting stuff sometimes.
There are other ways of handling crap than calling in the censors. For example, if I don't think I can hack it, I can always filter it out. Or I can try reasoning or answering back, like others are doing here ;-)
