Although I disagree with the person's opinion vehemently I'll defend
to the death his right to say it.
If we tolerate innocuous remarks in net.signatures I'd say we have to
tolerate comments we disagree with also, short of (perhaps)
obscenities or commercialism which is not the issue here.
That is, I find censorship the most offensive of obscenities, and the
Constitution seems to agree. I find your appeal to police authority
