I have a simple contribution to make here: leagues in general, and Eliteleague in particular, came into existence specifically as havens against the unrestrained trash of the average yahoo lobby.
It's a verifiable fact that any lobby that's been colonized by Elite is generally freer of such trash than other yahoo lobbies, by a huge margin. In essence, we represent a civilizing force, because this is what our members want, collectively.
As has been pointed out before, there are many other leagues with different points of view, and any player who feels too hemmed in by Elite rules has many options that offer him more freedom, elsewhere.
Nevertheless, as was explained earlier in this thread, free-speech issues are irrelevant in a privately-held company.
I posted a LONG and serious discussion of this in the General club, 15956 and 57. Anyone who is interested in our position on freedom of speech should read those two posts.
And I'm coming after your silvers, chief.
