    I'm not a prude. I go to nude beaches with my girlfriends. I'm ok with polygamy (both ways) and I get plenty. I'm also ok with regulating a public good in a manner that is best for the public, that being a public and fair manner.

    There is no need for nudity or profanity on the very few public airwave stations, and keeping those stations family-friendly is the will of the people.

    Given some of the arguments in this thread, there really should be a few more yes votes. I am heartened, overall though, by the results.

    It's funny how so many argue yes, but are too cowardly to come right out and vote it.

    Pretty much anyone who argues in favor of hate speech laws, or argues that the guy who made the video be jailed for making it, or argues that we should not be free to criticize Muhammed based on the potential reactions of people half a world away is arguing "yes".

    I have a list, if you need to see it.

    Some were apparently not Americans, so possibly they can be excused. But others are pleading with their fellow US citizens to appease the ME fundies because "freedom of speech just doesn't matter as much as human lives."

    Apparently, the whole premise of WW II escapes these idijits.

    Have you ever read Edgar Allen Poe's "The Telltale Heart", by any chance?

    See, you're not paying attention to what I am saying, you're just reading parts of it and lumping me in with preconceived stereotypes.

    What I said is that we have bigger fish to fry when it comes to freedom of speech than this. In a idea world, freedom of speech would be absolute. It isn't, and I have a hard time caring about the rights of some asshole who wants to incite violence when the rights of honest people to put nudity and curse words on tv is still being infringed.
