I've begun writing this article on 1998-06-14...
I loathe any claimed "right" to lie, or to publish rubbish. To do such things is to hinder and to waste the liberty of other people, and is so despicable as to deserve being fought with all of one's might, unless used in the extremities of self-defense against an even greater harm.
However, I also stringently deny to anyone the authority to universally judge in the name of others which assertions are true are false, what information is relevant or rubbish, and who is doing more good or harm than who else. Of course, there are cases when a judge was agreed upon in advance, such as in a dispute about implementation of some explicit written contract. And there are times when the civil order is at stake, and it is necessary for society that the case be settled, despite the impossibility of doing it with undisputable justice.
So the root of any "freedom of expression", much like that of any freedom, is not in the pride of claiming anyone's "right", but in the humility of acknowledging everyone's ignorance.

Being ignorant is not knowing this difference.
FI is about improving the SNR (signal/noise ratio) by encouraging S. FE is about decreasing the SNR by encouraging N.
