I love when people try to claim First Admendment Rights regarding message board posts. The First Admendment protects you from being arrested, jailed, assaulted, or even killed by the government for your speech. It do NOT protect you from criticism from others, PRIVATE entities (such as this site) sensoring your comments on their message boards or place of business, or people thinking (and calling you) an a$$hole. For the record I think this site is well done. Better then the sorry "Evening Phoenix" ever was. Keep up the good work Tom.

Actually, Bud can still start his own blog, speak in public, and do as he pleases. He's not suffering a punitive punishment beyond deletion. The fact is, Patch is a business, and businesses can decline privileges to anyone they choose (commenting on a website is a privilege, not a right, otherwise all websites would have to allow anonymous comments). His First Amendments are just fine. There are limits to what is acceptable discourse and a whole field called "Media Law" that addresses these.

I think Daniel needs to go back to school so he can learn what the First Amendment actually grants.
