That's what they say in dictatorships too right?
Just because you can't say whatever you desire without restriction, doesn't mean it is a dictatorship... They are two separate issues, you can have free speech in a Dictatorship you know and you can have restricted speech in a Democracy.
Fact is, this forum is very much moderated, just like the majority of other forums on the internet, it is what it is.
I highly doubt your work environment is a democracy either... In the end, this discussion is irrelevant and will change absolutely nothing, so might as well move along.
