People have the right to be assholes, just where did those "comments" from anita's videos come from? She doesn't have comments on any of her videos.

+GreatBigRanz People do have the right to be asshole (up to a certain point) and she agreed with that, outright saying free speech should be curtailed as little as possible. But the issues is that there aren't sufficient tools for people to filter out content directed at them. What ever someone has the right to say, the other party should have both the right and the tools not to hear what they say, if they so please.
