- Hi Emmett,
The thing is I aggree with you but I also think that any time any one
does not do exactly what one wants, it's a loss of freedom. Of course
that's what being civilized is all about, it's not might makes right (at
least not always). Not all people want good things. Most of us adults
know that, so controls are a good thing. Even so, I'm sorry we have to
have them and get upset when I see peer pressure in action because it is
kind of mindless and purposeless.
That may be personal. When I was younger I so wanted to "fit in". I
never did, probably never will in the way I wanted to back then, though
I do get a lot of acceptance and respect nowadays.
I've looked at a lot of review policies, and dabney.com's is refreshing
and straightforward. Yahoo.com's on the other hand goes on and on and
boils down to something like:
"We only allow stuff that no one has complained about."
At least that's the way I understand it.

to do what one wants is anarchy.

nobody complains (mostly minority lobby groups) about it and it
does not offend anybody, then it is OK regardless of what the law
says. I think the majority of the world wants what is morally
right. Of course that is a bit hard to define since what is
right in one country might not be in another, but the basics are
about the same.
