I've got a longer post brewing for next week, but I thought a short post about a pet peeve.
The first amendment protects against the government silencing you or erasing your words, and only the government. If someone else deletes your words, like GoodReads or The New York Times or even a blogger (yes, I have deleted comments from this blog - not often, but I have), it is not a violation of your first amendment rights.
Here's my question: how is it that so many people misunderstand this?
I genuinely don't understand this, so I'd love hear your opinions.
Post Script: It feels weird to look at that title considering what Congress is doing - or not doing, which is more to the point - today.
