It is an embarassment that in this day, this year, you are actually considering restricting one of our most cherished rights - Freedom of Speech - to further a political agenda. I'm sorry, but the more I hear all these attempts at control, the most I fear that we are creating a communist state...Most opressed countries in the world would kill for the opportunity to have the freedoms we have, especially speech...the ability to stand in a corner or post on the internet what we actually think and feel and you're trying to squash all of this. I was appalled to hear that by a mere manipulation of words you gained control of the internet....I wish that would have never happened.
