WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH?
Although everyone is urged to express their opinions in the forums, there are rules of decorum and civil behaviour to adhere to when participating in a moderated discussion forum. When you signed up for this service, you agreed to a set of rules outlined in the Terms of Service/User Agreement, or else you wouldn't have been able to proceed in the registration process, hence we assume you read them.
Nowhere is it stated, nor implied that total freedom of speech exists here, nor is this site considered a constitutional democracy. This site is a privately owned Canadian website for which you have been extended the courtesy to use providing you abide by the rules of the website, ie. the owner. Much like you have rules for your home when you are entertaining guests, they either abide by them or you ask them to leave - it's no different here.
