I agree because the internet has become the greatest tool that average citizens have to participate in the democratic process. To restrict their free speech is a restriction on the power of citizens to effect change on their government. Free speech is a cornerstone of America, and should not be forfeited due to a supposed "clouding" of a judge's final bottom-line.
