    I don't like the image, I find it offensive and in poor taste, but I do believe it should be allowed, in spite of my disapproval. Of course, it is within the spirit of free speech for me to express my significant disapproval.

    It definitely lowers my opinion of the people who have used it as an avatar, and their decision-making skills.

    Yeah, but it's more than that; if the image and similar forms of expression weren't there, you wouldn't have the means to ascertain whether the "ideal" was really being tested to any significant extent.

    ABSOLUTELY. The boundaries have to be pushed to make sure we are still on the right side of the issue. Using it as an avatar is idiotic, though.

    The Palestinian People of Chicago will be expressing their displeasure with your racial, bigoted, and biased "opinion".

    If this doctored photo of Obama is considered free speech (and it is), it's relevance and importance is equal to that of gooble gobble. Neither of which makes any sense.

    If you wanna test free speech, just give it a try! Holler out GOOBLE GOBBLE!!

    Just don't do it in a theater or in an airport.

    People just seem more annoyed by it there.
