#YMBLive E189

This is episode 189 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.

Censorship is a real thing. If you don't agree with me, I'll delete your comments and ban you. But what happens when "censorship" is totally private? To what extent can/should I silence people on my own property or my own website?

Principal: "Do NOT bring your cellular devices to school."
