Respect others, no verbal aggression, no threats. Free speech means you can express ''ideas''. An aggressive behavior, insults, threats, aren’t ideas, therefore this isn’t legitimate to being considered “free speech”. You can’t be “free to injure/aggress”, because freedom to harm someone else freedom (considering our weeknesses, our fragilities, nobody is perfectly neutral and resistant emotionally, we’re still humans) is ''not'' a freedom but a power. And power (as phallocrat, white, verbose person, etc.) isn’t legitimate in these places of free expression and share, strong values to La Quadrature du Net.

Obviously, respect for others enrolled in mailing lists is essential, and attacks/insults/threats are not tolerated under any circumstances here: such statements are not considered "free speech" (see this famous BD of xkcd on the subject). Don't hesitate to contact a administrator if you meet any problem.
 
 
For expression of ''ideas'', even if you’re free to express retrograd/absurd/stupid/shocking ideas (sexism, racism, homobobia/transphobia, etc.), others are free to reply, violently if needed (figurativly, i.e. having 30 replys from 15 militants, and if you don’t listen and don’t bother what people says to you, and you persist to blindly aggress/reduce others for what they are instead of what they do, therefore others are free to stop listening to you (client-side filtering, bad reputation, blacklisting, or even forced-unsubscribing/censorphip in most rare and extreme cases). Cf. [http://xkcd.com/1357/ this fabous xkcd comic].
