More on why I have this selfhosted

I was thinking to myself, wondering why I'm so adamant about keeping my blog self-hosted rather than going with a community site like Xanga. I came to the conclusion that the main reason is control.
There's a quote, and I don't know the exact wording, or who said it, but the gist of it is:
Freedom of the press exists only for those that own a printing press.
Well, this is my printing press. No one can tell me what I can or can't say here. Sure, the community sites pretty much allow you total freedom...but what if they decided to start restricting content? They could. It's their "printing press", they control what it "prints".
But here I can say fuck shit cunt twat motherfucker cocksucker asshole fuck fuck fuck all I want. And I can say that Bush shouldn't be President. Or whateverelsethefuck I want.
