    When you're here, I ask questions, YOU answer them
    Would the terms of free speech apply to a private website? Pretty sure they don't overlap.

    I agree with your general sentiment though.

    wouldn't surprise me at all.

    Also there are literally an army of zuffa shills and DW worshippers on this forum all following orders. Serious, this is like the only sport in the world where "fans" sh*t on the athletes while nut hug the promoter and the banner on a daily basis.

    Im surprised he can get his head out of Ronda's lap long enough to get offended by internet forums.

    I have no doubt of it. I'm a Rogan fan, but they were blowing Rogan at the end of the podcast.

    I'm no Dana White apologist, but it's worth noting that a lot of the shit flung around on this forum probably constitutes libel, so posters should maybe be glad that the only recourse pursued is through forum moderators.

    Free speech? Please. Libel has been ensconced as a legal tort since before the founding of the United States. Citizens of the United States have never enjoyed unfettered free speech. Hitchens did a good job explaining why that's so dangerous:

    He has had multiple accounts here over the years. If its not actually him posting on some of them, someone did a hell of a job copying him even down to his own style and thought process.

    Ya shilling is big now online, difficult to spot who's a regular forum poster or who's being paid to post

    Its not a conspiracy, just think of Telephone Marketers, or late night night infomercials with actors pretending to be real people who really love a product....same thing and it sucks.

    It would be unimaginable if a billion-dollar company so reliant on the whim of public opinion didn't employ a team to gather and analyze social-media intelligence, actually.
