I notice that between the trolls and the ideologie extremists that there is a lot of insulting venemous speach towards innocent questions... Problem is this speech doesn't rely on logic it's just angry rhetoric. Everyone's blown up before but some people are far too consistent

There is a restriction on hate speech, the issue is just that the community rules in general aren't exactly fully enforced, probably just due to the sheer number of posts and the administration's inability to review them all. From the GaG faq: "GirlsAskGuys reserves the right to edit content to ensure quality and to remove content that is inappropriate or abusive. We will remove content that breaks the law, is indecent or obscene, which defames anyone based on race, religion, disability, etc, or which is otherwise viewed as offensive by contemporary community standards."

But who decides? Maybe I am a passionate supporter of the First Amendment, and I find your question, 'offensive' questioning my right to say what I think! (Just an example, ok? Not attacking you, personally, but offering a contrary position, to your question.)
I've had a lot of ignorant haters just trashing on me for saying something, or for correcting their ideas about things that just don't make sense. But they have the right to assert their stupid, unfounded moronic opinion!! And I should have the right to tell them, in a dignified way, that they are idiots!
If you don't like what they post, don't answer, or block them. If it is overtly racist, and abusive, report it, and the moderators usually delete it rather quickly!
Just think about what you are asking, though: As soon as you restrict speech, and the Freedom of Expression, you limit yourself, as well!!
I ABSOLUTELY HATE what some say, but they have that RIGHT, in the US, and I think they should have that, on the internet, as well!! If you don't like it, don't answer or read it. If this site is too offensive to you, find another. There are MILLIONS out there!!
Nobody, an individual, or even special-interest groups, should have the right to say that someone cannot say what they think, when nobody is forcing you to listen!!
Make the choice for yourself, and leave our Freedoms alone.0
