Whoever added no soapboxing pretty much just showed up to declare censorship and mod-run opinions is in full-swing.

Mods shouldn't be doing anything but removing obvious proper spam, obviously commercial adverts and watching out for censorship gimmick games like "topic stacking" where brigades (or a single person) deliberately add 30 new topics to push a disliked topic "off the page". that kind of shit.

Otherwise, people can "Soapbox" all they like. Soapboxing really is the original internet forum before the internet. Soapbox rants in the park were MADE for that and are designated to be there and strictly protected. Soapboxes would be awesome graphic symbols for freedom of speech from Reddit btw. Soapbox is a great name for a free speech forum.
