disagree.....lies, vulgarity directed at someone, and "hate speech" should not protected......especially since all 3 are usually related....

freedom doesn't mean you don't have responsibility.....you can have free speech as long as its responsible.....this is why you cannot yell "fire" in a crowded movie theatre/store/etc.....

I don't think vulgarity or hate speech should be protected.

Not the 'most offensive' as it can incite hatred and violence.
