Dave,

While this may be as you say, I feel you needed to be exactly this clear with your earlier posts, seeing as you didn't very clearly say that you feel it is an inadvisable practice. What I see instead is a comment about free versus cost and then a following comment citing that you were in fact emitting sarcasm, at which point you and TenTenths conducted a side discussion in the thread.

To reiterate and be very clear I'm referring exactly to those ongoing back and forth comments about sarcasm and jokes and saying that they are not adding to this thread.

The OP felt they got an answer, they can choose to mark the thread as solved, they are a similarly long time member as are many in this thread.

This is one of those things that is going to take research.

Yes. I did mean open source. Where you don't get censored.

I don't mean vulgarity and such but out spokeness.

Online investigative reporting type stuff. Maybe. In the future. More like reviews.

Not that my projects page is going to be any big controversy. I just don't like 'looking over my shoulder'.

'I want to be free. Free. Baby!'

Like here.

Linux Questions Web Hosting. $1.99/year. No hidden gimmicks. 'Portions of the proceeds support ...'

I'd sign up.

Neocities is off Wikipedia list. Looks decent.

First thing I saw was HTML editor. That's not for me!

This is going to take time.

Okay. Neocities checks out as free and looks like you can be fairly outspoken.

I think I need a simple website builder.

Can you use any software and then upload it to Neocities?

I will check and see if they have support or their own forum.

Still looking at other webhosting.

I will go back to Wikipedia list and look at the others again.

Looking for:

monthly billing. So you are a paying customer to get support. Want to stay away from pay 1 year at once.

What if you decide you don't like it?

All the website builder's available. Joomla, Drupal and Wordpress.

Ended up at Neocities.

$5/month donation autopay.

Has HTML and CSS as far as I can see.

If I was to start commerce site I would go with Siteground.

But I would found out the total costs before going to far with that kind of webhosting outfit.

Make sure it's justifiable.

Are you asking if you can have a website for free?

And the provider offering this website for free also offers all its programs as free (open source)?

Is that what you're asking?

That's a very interesting, and completely incorrect, definition of the term "open source".

I would say that most web hosting companies don't do much censoring. I host websites (not for free!) and have rules against sites that preach any kind of hate or intolerance. I also choose not to host sexually explicit (pornographic) sites, but that's more out of concern for bandwidth and system loads than for any moral reasons. I also explicitly forbid things that are against the law. If a customer of mine wants to fill his site with four-letter words, or opinions with which I don't agree, he's welcome to do that...as long as he pays his bill!

Find a hosting company and read their Terms of Use/Terms of Service to see if they will "censor" you...if they will allow you to do what you want to do. We (hosting companies) sell disk space, bandwidth and customer support. Most of us are not interested in policing content.

PS
I can't (read: won't) compete with $5/month...JSYK

' its programs as free (open source)?'

No. I guess it's sort of subjective.

I mean like Neocities. No for profit type.

It's a little hard to define.

Probably is. It's hard to nail down.

A feeling of freedom when you publish articles on it.

Maybe they will get snitty if I say I like Craftsman tools and Goodyear tires on it.

Who knows?

'hate or intolerance'

No. No. No. Not looking for that. Thank you.

Then the rest of the things you mentioned. No.

More like freedom to express yourself without getting jumped on by 'lurkers'.

Lurker free.There we go!

Unlikely to happen. You want to freely express your opinion, but censor others??

You're twisting what I said.

I said I am not looking to engage in obscenity, foul language and that kind of thing.

I guess the real open source way to post is like Github.

I downloaded it and did not look anymore at that kind of thing.

That's for people that have a background in that or want to make a big commitment of time and energy.

On this kind of thing always confuses me.
I may wish to host a website using open source tools but I would not, ever, expect somebody to host it for me without recompense.
I know that is not what is being asked, and it's why I'm wanting to see suggestions, but I do not understand the "what can I get for nothing?" Philosophy.
