Your free speech arguements are misplaced. This forum is equivalent to a newspaper, and Max as editor is excersizing his free press rights in making decisions about what to publish. As I said in a previous post there are two elements to freedom of speech and freedom of the press. The first is being able to say or publish what you want, but the second the right not to be forced to say or publish something just because some other individual or agency tells you to. So in this case, those who submit to the forum enjoy their full free speech rights by being able to write and say what they want and to freely ask Max to publish it, and Max and the Mudcat are fully excersizing thier free press rights by reserving the right to decide whether or not to agree to the request.
