0 free speech if you aren't a leftie
Freedom of speech is often abused and purposely breaks HLTV's rules, leading other users to think it's not allowed.
20% free speech is allowed. Even normal things that aren't offensive are being deleted every day, just like this thread will be
This is relatively non-oppresed site. so I'd say only about 20% of all knowledge is forbidden.
Average site has almost 50% censored. News site comment sections are the worst. They are pretty much muted- close to 80% of comments are "too dangerous for democracy".
On the other hand 9gag has just 10% muted and voat, 4chan and 8chan are close to 0%.
Hate speech is not same as free speech
just dont say n word / be too offensive, like you would in real life, and thats how much free speech you get, dont even tweet on twitter though, saying the word retarded which wasnt bad up until 2020 is now the worst word ever, snowflake andys
This is a website not a country. The admin decide what you can and can't say.
Freedom of speech... either you have it or you don't.
So no, we don't have it.
Is that all bad? PROBABLY not. But where do we draw the line? That's the question. Obviously the admins rn have drawn that line pretty far over on the left - which I think is pretty bad.
Idiots shouldn't have any freedom of speech.
Normal, friendly, decent people are welcome to express any opinion. Agreement is not part of the equation. You are not my enemy just because you think differently, but some people only go for calling each other "names" from the schoolyard, not to mention racist, nationalist or sexist madness.
Some are just childish or foolish, which is cute, but idiots should be banned from the entire world.
I at least can rarely talk about anything
Lol, there's no free speech here.
This is not publis/government space
You're allowed to talk about anything so long as you don't mention China, The Uighurs Genocide or Covid lab origins.
Also don't think of criticizing the EU, Social Democracy or the leftist coallition of Spain.
Obviously if you didn't observe political correctness then you are being 'offensive' like supporting 'All lives matter' instead of BLM. But if somebody are spreading hate towards countries like Russia and China maybe, then reporting them won't work at all cuz they're excersing their 'right of free speech'.
lmao hltv and free speech, was that my cue to laugh?
For a short amount of time, you have complete free speech. Then you get banned.
You can discuss more or less what you want, if you keep a decent tone. And yes, you CAN be critical of Trump or BLM for example, without resorting to hatespeak.
So many people deliberately take the next step into hateful rhetoric and are of course deleted/banned.
I speek freely i get bannend lulw
100% unless ur a nazi be sensible
its less free speech more like arbitrary gods striking people down at random
aside from the obvious racism, if you're at all edgy you'll get banned all the time
Im not allowed to insult users so its 0%
