When full freedom is given, people may interpret freedom according to their own version and that will create problems for others. Rules and restrictions, moderation and censoring are implemented so that the content output is acceptable to the accepted and expected levels of decency, civility, prudence, discretion and nationality allegiance, and compliance to rule of law.
As far as ISC is concerned generally most of the members follows self moderation and stay within the expected boundaries. Once in a while the problem of interpreting according to one's own version happens and at that time the editors step in and moderate.
I am not a member in Quora, but had come across the question and answers there while searching net for some matter. Within that much experience, I did not see anything objectionable.
The level of thinking, patriotism, respecting other individuals will also be lost. Restrictions limit their method of presenting not their thoughts.
In ISC also we should first respect each other as individuals. Rules are here to improve our presentation, writing techniques to master over the subject.
Lead the leader
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
Same is the case in social media also. Because the visitors to these sites are not knowing the limits editing is becoming necessary. You have no right to criticise others without knowing the facts and you are not the judge to decide who is at fault. But many people may ignore these posts and may not give much weightage.
Some people take seriously and try to go to courts or take actions. So one should not go for such posts. I feel we should have some restrictions. Then only we will be in our control. Otherwise, we will be doing all sorts of things and we will invite troubles. Too much freedom is never good for an individual.
Knowledge is power.
