I don't think anyone's LEGAL right to post here (BTW, why assume all
participants are US-based?) is being questioned. If legality was at issue,
then we really could do something about all the damn spamming. What is
being questioned is posting about such obviously off-topic and polarizing
issues in a forum that prides itself on being so well-focused and polite.
Especially after the exact same topic came up once and started this precise
flurry of non-sas messages. We all have opinions, >99% of us manage to keep
our mouths shut because it's inappropriate in this setting.
And if you can't resist and have to post replies, at least trim the posts.
The rants gets less interesting each time around.
