You used an important word: PRIVATE.
News for you - this is the 21st century, not 19th. One word: internet.
News and information is more democratic than it ever has been.
I know other words :Monopoly and Cartel for example.
I don't see why a PRIVATE company should allow people who break its rules. If you owned a shop and someone kept coming in and nicking stuff you'd soon tell them to fuck off.
Perhaps but if I ran Tesco and Sainsburys and I refused to serve you food because you didn't like beans, you'd be a tad pissed off. Especially is the nearest Lidl was forty miles away.
