Not to be that guy, but technically you have no rights in an online community.

You have privileges.

You may have the privilege of participating in an online community, sure.

But expressing something 'negative' would fall under the right to freedom of thought, opinion, an expression (Article 19 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights).

It takes a very special kind of community to recognise that the community does not come at the expense of the rights of the individual. It also takes a very special kind of person to know that the individual does not come at the expense of the rights of the community.

Many communities, and individuals, continue to struggle with this philosophy - preferring one over the other. That is the real cause of conflict, not the expression of negativity.

Personally, I found that youtube video (Life is better with Rust's community automation - YouTube) rather disturbing.
