While I think it's shameful and childish, I do think that since they are a private company, they are entitled to kicking me off if they don't like what I say. Now, if I paid for their service under the express understanding that, within reason, I could say what I wanted (i.e. no screaming "fire" in a movie theater), and THEN they squelched me, it would be a contract dispute.

Still, it's very lame and I think they will get what they deserve soon enough.
