Comments banned?

You have banned me from making comments on your site.

I have a right to free speech and expression. I don’t ask for my account back i demand it back.

If you don’t like the truth, then too bad. You allow gays/ perverts their opinions so I want mine.

J.G.

Our house rules are clearly stated, and allow considerable latitude for exchanges of opinions. I’m sorry, but “free speech and expression” doesn’t allow you to say things such as “The only good Muslim is a dead Muslim,” and “Kick all Muslims out of our country asap!” to quote from two of your blocked comments: GBU Editor

I see nothing in Reuters actions that violates your Right to Free speech as set forth in the First Amendment. I don’t even see how they could violate your First Amendment rights. As for your account: you accepted the same terms and conditions as everybody else.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
