If you say: Forum members, you can now threaten to beat up other forum members, or your spouse, or the president. Threats are not real, go ahead if you want to. Do you know what happens next? Some asshole every day of his asshole life will post something to the effect of: It's only a threat. Even after he posts that 50 times in 30 days, it's only a threat. So why should anyone get annoyed? Freedom of speech must include threats, right? No, I don't think so.
