Recently, Yahoo News announced its strategy for combating toxic comment sections: It has completely suspended commenting. That’s right, Yahoo comments are gone! And some people are not happy.

Anyone who is upset by Yahoo’s so-called “censoring of free speech” should be aware that the First Amendment does not require any outlets to provide comment sections for people to share their thoughts. If you find yourself wanting to share your opinions, you are welcome to do so in other corners of the internet, as well as offline.

Opinions don't go away because they are blocked. They are looking for other places, and that usually just helps to amplify them.
