    If your brush was any broader you could paint the whole human race.

    This reminds me the infamous "cultural revolution" in china and an act which killed thousands of war heroes and veterans in USSR.
    And sure, banning "this" actually shows terrorist has won.
    I believe, when we can openly discuss something, we do not afraid it at all. We don't want it to be known by lots of unsuspected people because doing so would hurt us in some way.

    Europe has no freedom of speech.

    Germany is now trying to criminaly prosecute Zuckerberg.
    https://news.vice.com/article/germa...-charge-facebooks-zuckerberg-over-hate-speech
    Germans prosecuting the son of jewish immigrants for not censoring free speech...you can't make this **** up.

    They haven't learned anything in the past 80 years.

    Vote Trump!
    America has to safe the world once again.

    Well, if so, perhaps my faith on human world diminishes even more.
    I didn't realise Europe has no freedom of speech and Australia is said to be the "most restricted country in western world". However, I sort of doubt if Americans have the right to "speak freely".

    There's freedom of speech and there's hate speech.

    Maybe this new law is not properly written.

    If I were a terrorist I think I'd have a look at the SSIDs in neighborhood and try to blend in a little better than this guy in France did. Heh, if he's typical, then should not be long before the war's over.

    Inciting hatred is dangerous and can be criminal.

    "Hate speech" is protected by the first amendment.

    Never mind what the fox says (it says something different and less amusing every time out the box imo even if it still goes viral)

    On the thread topic, "prosecuted because of WiFi name": in the USA public speech is protected (within limits, i.e. you may not incite violence) but that has nothing to do with your WiFi handle. You could still get your WiFi's SSID booted if your provider doesn't like it. Your right to broadcast it (or not broadcast it if you "hide" it) is predicated on the provider's terms and conditions.

    People in rural areas around here used to broadcast their SSID and leave it unlocked until of course two things happened, one was people abusing the privilege and two, the providers starting busting people for sharing service. File under why we cannot have nice things. Now the presumed "freeloaders" who were the intended object of generosity have to drive their kid back to a town library to do their school homework.

    The French are idiotic. Especially since he used the derogatory term for ISIS.

    But the government can't prosecute you for an offensive wifi name.

    If you could thread the needle well enough to pick a name the company didn't care about but the government took as incitement, it's not out of the question?

    Government and other interested parties here are more likely to go after you for content, not the SSID.
