bab10m, you sound like a guilty guy saying "just let me go to the prison, and I'm not going to waste any time on explaining my crimes". You are smart to avoid defending your baseless statement, which is not dependable.
@Stan, people like bab easily get paranoid about free speech. You are not alone to be accused by their groundless argument. They automatically link a free speech to a conspiracy without any evidence. My approach is to forgive folks with this mental issue. Their life is probably pity enough.
Meanwhile, there are guys who like labeling people express opinions hurt their stock positions as bull bashers or short sellers. They may personally know those people are not actually bull bashers or short sellers, but they cannot stand a opinion that may potentially hurt their stock positions. So, they decide to selectively evaluate opinions. For the opinions that sound very bullish but without substance, they applaud them without any reservation. For the opinions that sound bearish but concrete, they refuse them right away.
