Hate speech on DS.
September 28, 2010, 2:40PM
I couldn't find the manifest of laws for DS, so I wanted to ask about just how free the speech is on here. I've read so many obvious displays of sexism, racism and anti-homo/bisexuality on some of the profiles that it's just repulsive. Everyone has a right to their opinion, that much is true, but isn't this taking it too far? I also know that if a person fits in one of those categories, he/she doesn't need to read it, but that doesn't alter the fact that it's there, and kind of ruins the multi-coloring of the society that has been created here.
Besides, aren't the sites being checked on?
