So, I have standards. Do I believe in restrictions in freedom of speech? Under certain circumstances, yes I do.

I tend towards “civility in discourse” as a sign of common decency.

You execute that most of the time. Sometimes you don’t.
I try to and sometimes I don’t.

Yeah, I’m with you on that. I don’t have a problem with reasonable restrictions placed upon freedom of expression in certain socially negotiated situations [fire in a crowded theater type things]…

…and I’m also all for speaking asdf about a “return to decency”. I’m for people publishing books of etiquette, suggestions for proper decorum, etc. I have my mental lists of “this is right and this ain’t right” that I share sometimes.

Force of law? Well, that’s when things get a little hairy.
