I think he means the First Amendment, the one about the "government"
regulating "speech."

Thankfully, except for slavery, only the government can violate the
constitution, including the first amendment. The rest of us can use the
delete key or block function without fear of violating the First Amendment.

For this reason, private individuals who provide private forums for free
speech, without resorting to banning, blocking, or deleting, deserve much
applause, since they have every right to ban, block, and delete from the
forum those with whom they disagree, and choose in the interest of public
discourse, not to exercise that right.
