Joe-× proclaimed:
What is your tool of choice?
Socioeconomic pressure; coercion that doesn't involve physical force at any point. Consider how well this works in other areas: We have no hate speech laws in the U.S. Michael Richards and that fire chief are free to spew n-bombs all they like. The rest of us are free to not associate with them, and the impact is enormous.

The above can be applied in other areas: We get the zeitgeist to find it unacceptable that anyone not pay their fair share. If someone says "fuck you, it's my money" the IRS won't come throw them into a rape room, but they'll find themselves unable to conduct much business, all the way down to buying groceries.

Troll's Hole proclaimed:
Oh mighty dictator of the spider's lair
Why are the smilies appropriate?
Your horse drawn wagon is as inexpensive as a London unforunate
Who can you please when your tree house of diamonds collapses?
Its ladder being pulled away by the children who won't grow
Unleash the lizard
Squash the rebellion, for they mean to commit highway robbery
Turn their words into incomprehensible letters
Prisoners of the physical realm
Only the arms of the bear can save them now
But the ref pulls out the red card
The crab of the downward spiral eats ravioli and ejaculates corrupt Linux files
