Is the TOTAL freedom of expression via internet okay?

    What I mean to ask is, at this day and age when technology is at the disposal of any person, is it okay for ANYONE to comment ANYTHING about EVERYTHING?

      i think total expression should be okay even face-to-face.
      confrontation and/or honesty just make most people uncomfortable.

      its easier to go on the internet where you do not really risk any physical altercations and you can have a blase attitude about people since you don't know them in real life and most likely never will. though this shouldn't justify people taking it to an uncivilized extreme.

      i find that often times people are too confrontational, but also too sensitive on the internet. its just the internet, after all.

        Great point. I don't want to comment on my own question yet. But let me stress out the fact that EVERYONE is entitled to opinion, even UNeducated opinion on every possible issue. This comes without fact-checking or evidence. Most people base their opinions on emotions. Is this something that we should allow as a society?
