Look, I'm not criticizing your post, I think it's a fair and nice discussion. You asked for feedback and I shared mine. I don't mean to make you mad at this, just wanted to contribute with what I think is relevant. How valuable is this feedback is up to you...

You asked for how people approach blog titles. That's my approach: freedom of speech. I do not recognize anyone as entitled to claim moral superiority for limiting other people's freedom to speak their minds.

I consider dangerous vesting an external authority with such power and superiority. Just remember about Galileo or Giordano Bruno, for example. They were considered to be immoral by the highest authorities of their time, just by saying the Earth was not flat and it revolved around the Sun.

To me, freedom of speech must be inalienable. One can name any institutional or authority notion of morality; I, as an individual, will not recognize any entitlement for them to judge what people can or cannot speak, provided that it's not physical violence promotion, as I noted in previous comments.
