Yeah as I said earlier he was banned because of his opinions or speech but because of the Bullying, also his posts were constantly multiplying saying basically the same thing that it was pretty much spam, which is against the forum rules which we all abide by.

Just because you have freedom of speech doesn't mean you can go around harassing people or annoying them, regardless if it's virtual or not. And even if it weren't against the law, which it is in 42 states, it's against the site rules, which are clearly stated. He knowingly went against those, and the Admin had full right to remove him.

I understand the concern and I would love to inforce it too, but isn't this censorship against the Internet Freedom Act?

A month late to this discussion, but: This website is privately owned, and the owner is allowed to censor whatever he likes on it.  The only block on censorship is that organizations (including governments) and individuals cannot censor information on websites owned by others.

Well put KOS, although there are general internet laws, think of the forum like it's own state with it's own laws.

Excuse me, Swadmin, I've found a person who had posted on Duplicate accounts, And I believe his post was spam.
