The Guardian nails the sardonic definition form; it's a worthy complement to Stan Kelly-Bootle's book "The Computer Contradictionary".

"free speech (ph) A constitutionally protected right in the US that is primarily invoked by tech bros and internet trolls when they are asked to stop being assholes. Syn: hate speech. See ideological diversity."

@akuchling I wish there's an official way to buy that book in a digital format!

@michel_slm I prize my paperback copy of "The Computer Contradictionary"; it's a great, great .

Unfortunately I think the target audience is the intersection of the sets "people in IT/CS" and "people who like Ambrose Bierce", and that's a really small group!

@akuchling with that ringing endorsement, I guess I'll spring for the paperback too, thanks!
