From the Docs accompanying KILLRQ:
"In political Newspeak, people who are perfectly free to say whatever
they want to nevertheless claim that they are being 'censored' if other
people refuse to pay for their words."
"The cry of 'censorship' is raised even against private individuals and
organizations when they don't go along with things that are said and
done by those who demand not only freedom but also an audience."
"'I have a right to say what I want to!' one musician declared
indignantly. It never seemed to occur to him that other people also
have rights -- including the right not to touch his stuff. Once you
start talking about rights as if they override other people's rights,
then you are really talking about privileges."
From an article in 12/30/91 Fido News:
"... there is a ... category of material which can
pose legal trouble for a sysop. This is libelous text,
material that defames a person. Somebody who writes material
of this nature, and a sysop who allows his system to be used
in the dissemination of such things, could be the subject of
a lawsuit in today's litigious climate."
