One serious problem with hate speech is that it encourages or emboldens illegal harmful physical action by some, who otherwise would not take that action.  Hate speech would likely be moderated if the speaker/influencer was also charged for the physical crime under conspiracy laws.  The `hater` could still say whatever he wanted, given the freedom to speech, but pay the same penalty as the criminal actor if it could be shown that his speech/blog/book/etc. likely influenced the criminal.  Beecan

The problem with moderators is bias.  Who decides what is hate speech and what is reasonable.  I say Brian Cardinal spews hate speech, but, he has the right to say it.  Not on a private forum, if the owners decide, but in public, whenever and wherever he chooses.  As long as he does no harm. 

I didn`t suggest a moderator - just legal co-responsibility for crimes committed on the basis of speech that encourages those crimes.
The US government has no right to moderate my, or other free speech.  In Europe that is not true.  You can be silenced by the government easily for warming comments, anti-islamic comments, pro nazi comments.

Cider,
In our country Iddee has the right to carry a firearm for any reason he chooses. 
Unlike the UK, we have a Bill of Rights.

Well, one of our other hives swarmed today, and made up for the 40 foot swarm.  They landed at about 5 1/2 feet.  Easy pickins' my husband called it.  We were out in our compound building a fence for the garden (a fence within a fence) and watched to see where they would land.  They landed in our smallest apple tree and we landed another hive!

I would suspect that your flow has already stopped. I hope that is not true my bees are not too far from you. They have put on a lot of weight already put I hope we have at least 3 more weeks. I will try to see if I have drones. My observation hive in town has a brand new queen and they have cleaned out drone cells and worker cells for her to lay in but is a totally different flow.

Finally, a state that has the balls to stand up to this politically correct garbage. I'll bet they would not have been able to do that I Trump was not the Preston

Is the hive short on something?  In my limited opinion bees will toss out drones when they can't feed them.
