the zen of tolerance

  • You are entitled to voice your opinion.
  • You are not entitled to force it upon everyone.
  • You are not entitled to force it upon a subgroup repeatedly.
  • You are also not entitled to hurl hate towards participants, since that would disrupt communication.
  • If you cannot stay respectful and friendly after being asked to, I will unsee you and advise others to do the same with a clear and brief explanation, so they can take an informed decision.

I will use technical means to realize the zen of tolerance.

Tolerance for intolerance is self-defeating. Continuous disruption of communication is censorship.

Constant outrage disrupts communication. As does constant mocking.

This could also be called the paradox of free speech: your freedom of speech is worth as much as mine. It ends where it impedes on mine. And vice versa.

In Freenet, the decentralized FMS forums and the WebOfTrust plugin implement a technical method which can be used to realize this.
