Freedom of speech should be the same whether online or in the physical world. The problem is that whereas one can identify persons who have "abused " that freedom in the physical world, it can be more challenging with online communications.

Hence the move towards issuing orders to hosting providers to remove offensive content or be subject to local laws.

at what point do we consider the right to freedom of speech in the internet to be over abused or rather abused
