That's like saying J-walkers and murderers both violated the law so we should get rid of those words and just call them all criminals. Ludicrous.
> It's quite rich for someone who took advantage of a free service and violated its terms of service to question the way they are flagged after being found out. It's not like playing on lichess and having it go your way is your constitutional right or something like that.
I think "take advantage of" is rather overly dramatic but violated the TOS, sure. If I did it I can own it. But you on the other hand are putting on airs as though you own this place to tell me what I can or cannot say. I assure you you do not own or run lichess so if they allow me freedom of speech and the law allows me freedom of speech I'm going to continue to exercise my freedom of speech whether you like it or not. By using a 'free service' in no way do I surrender any of my constitutional rights.

I never said you weren't allowed to excercise your freedom of speech. Also, I pointed out the rules and said that I find them reasonable, I don't know what gave you the idea that I think to have any authority with regard to them and lichess. Have a good day

you know what I do when I win a game live in chess competitions I dance a lala dance, but when I lose, I pour myself cold water because I think about losing for a few days. what do you say to my idea after the dance to dance lightly and quietly ?!

You said it's 'quite rich' for me to question them. "quite rich" doesn't sound complimentary. Hence you were being critical of my use of free speech. Is there something unclear about that?

And what does the reasonability of the rules have to do with it? I never said the rules were unreasonable, only the false label.

If they do it in football why not in chess? People who are serious chess enthusiasts want chess to be taken more seriously like a sport. So we will have to start allowing the victory dances.

Buttercup22:but otherwise you are right and the best sport in the world with a ball is football

You said it yourself, I was critical about your use of free speech (in other words, I didn't agree with what you said), I wasn't however in any way implying that you should not be allowed to express yourself. Do you always assume that when someone disagrees with you is threatening your rights? Regardless, I don't know why we got tangled up in this pointless discussion, I didn't mean to offend you or question your right to express your beliefs, and I apologise if I somehow gave you that impression. Bye
