Freedom to say what ever anyone wants to must be balanced by the freedom to be told to shut up because what is being said is wrong ! But that does not deny the person saying the 'wrong' thing the right to say it. Nonetheless there are laws which proscribe the rights of people to say things which, for example, inflame racial hatred. There must be a balance of freedom & responsibility & judgment of this is a difficult one to assess. This is in this instance the case that you can type whatever you like on WA: Anything... I cannot stop you publishing whatever you want to say, however base, but if you contravene TOU (Terms of use) then you will be banned ! Hmm, so much for freedom of speech, eh.... No, you must say what you will, but there are defined limits in this situation & in the world at large. In fact it is all about how it is phrased, if you can say something difficult well then you will probably get away with it, if you say 'All *&^%$%^s are (*&^&*&%s' then you will not.

What are limitations on freedom of speech?

Hate speech criminalization is a major limitation on speech. Diversity people are granted special protection by big government so as to prevent their hurt feelings and prevent them from reacting with violence toward a hate speaker. If a Diversity person or a hate speaker react with any form of violence, only the hate speaker is necessarily subject to government prosecution for hate speech. The intent of hate speech criminalization is to chill criticism of Diversity people. Another limitation on speech is free speech zones designated by big government. Outside a free speech zone a speaker is subject to arrest and prosecution.
