All free speech needs to be tempered with responsibility - giving people the right to openly express their hatred and prejudices can be as repressive as censorship - more so in some cases
Who decides s the problem - I would have thought common sense and decency has to play a major part in the decision.
It doesn't take rocket science to work out that being allowed to openly express race, cultural or gender hatred can be dangerous to the point of being lethal
