You already have tools to mute others FOR YOURSELF depending on the client you are using. If you wanna call that a freedom then sure, you have the freedom to dig a hole for your head already. I am not against you or anyone from doing that. In fact, I encourage it because nobody is entitled to your attention.
Having the freedom to ban others to prevent them from posting on Nostr because you disagree with them is NOT a basic freedom, that’s a privilege. The problem is not me understanding English, it’s you twisting words in a hope to gain some moral high ground or cause some reaction on the reader. For that you are an asshole.
You aren’t fooling anyone with your hypothetical scenarios. You are not fighting any real battle by restricting others speech about a topic you dislike. The actual battle is being waged by those that have actual power, with weapons and the willingness to stop others with unrelenting force.
So if you wanna do something meaningful go out there and do something instead with your own meat suit.
