>I do feel however that just USING so called bad language should be protected under the right of free speech and ADOBE nor any of its agents have the right to censor that language.
I have to disagree (politely) here. Adobe pays for the servers that host this web site. They pay for the software that runs this forum. They pay for the IT guys that maintain the servers and software.
If you set up your own web site that deals with Premiere Pro or any other Adobe products, then you can create rules that allow participants to say whatever they want, if that is your desire.
>USING so called bad language should be protected under the right of free speech
You are misunderstanding the US law (Constitution) on free speech
This was written 200+ years ago, when "rabble rousers" would use a small printing press, or give speeches in the public square, and was designed so the Government could not suppress that speech
That means that you, as the owner of a printing press, may say what you want and the authorities may not suppress that right
That does NOT mean that you, as the owner of a printing press, absolutely must allow someone else to put his/her words in YOUR document... let them get their own printing press
Or, put another way, you may stand in the middle of the town square and falsely yell FIRE all day long... but do the same thing in a crowded theater, where someone is hurt in the rush to get out, and you will go to jail (and be sued by those who were injured)
So... if you want personal attacks and swearing in YOUR discussion forum... go right ahead
Just don't expect anyone else to allow those things... that is not free speech according to the law, that is simply following the established rules
Just my $.02 worth
Adobe is better off not allowing personal attacks. It wasn't the language itself, but rather, the personal attack that was eliminated. His, and then my response.
Guys, as we should all know by now, these discussions get a lot more play in the Video Lounge.
Feel free to have your say there. These forum areas should be used for discussions on the software, not to talk about the forums themselves.
