Dear Milton, and all

your position on freedom of expression is well documented and I can tell you
believe it is the only correct one.
Hence I am sorry to say that I dont have the time to discuss with you
especially when you start the exchange with this agressive (not to say
insulting) tone.

My intention is to find intercultural consensus and deliberate about a
practical institutional ecology to address FoE issues on the internet.
Stating that there should be no limits to FoE is a contribution, but wont
help us find a solution besides the radical solution of no mediating bodies.
