We should allow free speech, shouldn't we??

I would just like to add that for Americans, "freedom of speech" is a legal term with a precise meaning.  In particular, since the article in the US Constitution begins with "Congress shall make no law...", this has been broadly interpreted by the courts as applying only to the government.  It is neither censorship nor a restriction of free speech for individuals and non-governmental entities to restrict speech in their own environment in whatever way they so choose.
