Que bueno, que exista algun tipo de moderacion, pero que no haya llimitacion, cuando no hay libertad de expresion es como si le serrucharan el baston, es mejor con un sistema que este mejor encryptado

Yo creo que esta es una manera de cohercionar y no permitir de alguna manera la libertad de expresarse, control pero no represion
