I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

    The modern version has become,

    "I do not agree with what you have to say, and I'll put you to death if you say it again"

    The effect is much the same but digital death is actually more painful.

    There are hate speech law in the UK - quite rightly so in my opinion. I certainly wouldn't give my life for the right of Nazis to spread their hatred.

    What about grammar nazis? You missed an 's' off!I
    t's particularly important as there appear to be at least two hate speech laws: one for us and one for them...

    Grammar Nazis don't spread hate, they are just annoying (especially when they are wrong!).

    aha
    Im not on facebook or twitter but particularly like looking at twitter and indeed it is pathetic how people hide themselves behind it (no backbone) plus as you say the grammar police

    gosh imagine me on it they would go apoplectic i cant be bothered with all the grammar stuff although decimal point mistake can be troublesome

    however

    I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.
