Bhahahahhahahaha I love this! I guess I must be a cry-baby and I surely must hate free speech.
But seriously folks. How in the heck can registerring for this site limit your free speech? Quite the opposite, it allows your voice to be fully heard. You'll be able to vote in polls like this one and your writings will be easier to find without having to sift through spam.
Mr. Grant also brings up a good question about the spam posts on this web site. The reason why we see so many spam posts on an open forum like this is because it generates traffic for their web site. Even if none of us ever click on one of the links that are posted, the spammers think that having the links show up as many times as possible ups the ratings of their web sites on Google, Yahoo and other search engines. The search engines are getting wise to this, but that doesn't stop the spam postings from happening.
I wouldn't mind seeing this site require registration. I know it would be a pain for some. I think it would bring this group closer together. I've seen a bunch of forums and e-mail groups come and go in the Wright community. This one seems to keep going. It'd be nice to see it prosper and gain more of a sense of community.
