I'm going to bring out questions one at a time to play with the flow of this experiment. First Q: The initial examples we're told about in Part 3 of Communities in Cyberspace   are all imposed by people constructing their own domains within the larger network. My question is why that should matter? It reminds me of people setting rules like, "Wear a black tie to come to my party." Nobody considers that a danger to society. Doesn't this issue get serious only when the topmost authorities (not MUD gods but Congress, the courts, etc.) censor online expression?
