    Free speech on internet forums.
    I call for all moderators to step down.

    a) They are wasting their lives
    b) They are oppressing peoples views
    c) They annoy pretty much everyone

    Free speech on internet forums.
    I call for all moderators to step down.

    a) They are wasting their lives

    By registering and accepting the terms of a forum such as TSR you actually surrender your right to free speech per se - as you have to adhere to rules against being insulting.
    b) They are oppressing peoples views
    It's suppressing pointlessness/racism/offensiveness which breaks the rules - it's not oppression as you can freely give your opinion as long as you aren't ranting saying things such as "******s are all devils that need put in concentration camps" or "black people aren't real people" They aren't punishing people in any way.
    c) They annoy pretty much everyone
