How will you stop Mozilla from destroying internet freedom? bring back anti-censorship "dissenter" addon

more options

So we made the big mistake when we originally decided to ban the comment section of the internet, which gives users the ability to comment and promote free and open dialogue. We removed it after claims it could be used, like Firefox, for posting hate speech (which does not exist according to the supreme court), however we see no banning of Mozilla's Firefox or Cisco's Webex web and video conferencing addon which can be used spread this non existent activity. Banning Dissenter is akin to banning the wheel because criminals might use it to escape from a crime scene, or banning socks because people wear them while saying hateful things. Censorship and control is the obvious agenda.

The censorship of dissenter by Mozilla is one of the greatest attacks against the internet and online freedom we have seen, one I will not stand by and let you get away with. Its time to bring dissenter back... the question is, what are you going to do about it?

I think that you can still install the dissenter addon, if you want.
