      Free speech should not spit on anyone.
      Freedom of speech should be for some good. 
      The abuse of freedom of speech is not for any good.

        I completely agree with you. though that would mean it needs to have limits at some point.

          The limits are here:
          "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."
          This is a universal principle and can be applied to freedom of speech.

          Would I want some one to say that about me?
          Would I want to be purposely mislead with false claims and blatant untruths??
          Would I like to be called names and slandered?
          Do I really want your negative opinion about my mother.. or worse...
          me! yikes

    The whole  and only problem with free speech is :   That free speech itself SHOULD be used in a responsible ,  considerate  and positive  way .     That old adage  " Speak 10 % of the time and listen 90% of the time  is lost on so, so many !        The bill of Rights  should have stated --- Responsible free speech .

      Hem.... Responsible free speech, sounds very interesting. would you say that for an exp : telling a true story that could cause damage to innocent people is irresponsible. although this brings another situation into my mind, which is what if some people would refuse to debate with anther person about his beliefs (possibly his religious beliefs, or other beliefs) in a inappropriate way and tone that the later one would consider as an insult or distasteful.

    1.) "...telling a true story that could cause damage to innocent people is irresponsible." 
    Yes…and slanderous.

    2. )  "...People would refuse to debate with anther person about his beliefs (possibly his religious beliefs, or other beliefs) in a inappropriate way and tone that the later one would consider as an insult or distasteful."

    Yes. It is not allowed here on HP and it is monitored pretty well. Plus you can report those who are really offensive.
    People do not like to be banned and that is the reason (if not the only reason) it is pretty calm around here.
