So apparently some people feel that calling someone an asshole for doing/saying something you find offensive and reprehensible some how attacks their right to free speech.
Can someone please give me a guide I can use to determine when I can voice my opinion and when I can’t because my exercise of free speech some how detracts from theirs?

[The thread where this went down has pretty much been deep sixed by the other party. He cared so little he took the time to block me. Good thing I have mutual friends to make sure that it never disappears.
Just as a side note, I don’t normally act in a civil manner when I demand something. Please and thank you go right out the window when one makes a “demand”. I was merely asking him to name a victim to prove that he actually could name one, if he didn’t want to then fine, that’s his business.
But overall this has been something that has really started to piss me off as of late. If I voice my displeasure at X for something they said or did that is covered by “Free Speech” I am all the sudden trampling on their free speech by exercising my right to free speech.
