    Craigslist Censoring begs the Question Is the Internet the last great Bastion of Free Speech?


    (Page 1 of 5 )

    There is yet another debate raging over whether the Internet should truly allow unfettered free speech.

    This debate is over Craigslist and whether it should be more proactive in censoring those who post on it.

    The debate began when listings for apartments were posted that were obviously racially slanted. In this article I look at the issue and ask the question: Should the Internet be censored?

    Free speech is one of the building blocks of any democratic society. Without free speech we, as citizens of the democratic society, would be subject to many forms of chastisement including personal attacks and even legal ramifications.

    This is why I for one like the Internet. You see, to me the Internet is one of the last great representations of true free speech. We are allowed to post as we see fit whether it is a comment in a forum or a blog post which gets syndicated around the world.

    In fact, many sites have made their livings from allowing the general public to freely post their viewpoints, both positive and negative.

    Apartmentratings.com has been sued before by angry landlords or building owners. This is a site which allows renters of apartments all over the US to post comments and ratings about the buildings they live in. Of course, many people are generally happy with their apartments but some are not, and arenít afraid to let the world know.
