    There are a few factors that allow someone to be refused service. Consider these four areas:
    1. Drunkenness
    2. Disorderly conduct
    3. Destruction of property
    4. Disagreement over “terms of service.”

    A business should be able to refuse service for any reason they want.

    It’s a private business.

    I don’t know of too many businesses that don’t reserve the right to ask any guest leave for any reason.

    But any business that does without good reason risks backlash.

    Some good reasons are
    -disorderly/disruptive/dangerous conduct
    -and with caution, religious beliefs. But this is a risky one. And there are identity authoritarians who will intentionally seek out a business they know has certain religious beliefs and ask them to do something contrary to them — and then sic the media and justice warrior hounds on them.

      @griz an online/ software company’s terms of service are also important. Basically “don’t sue us.”

        @Jear77
        There is a difference between protecting business, and protecting an ideology. Especially with mob bullying tactics. This is the disturbing trend that a lot of the identity politics people are getting into — trying to use their business as “a weapon” against perceived ideological “enemies”.

        It would be unacceptable to refuse to serve someone based on how they voted or what sports team they root for. Or what religious belief-system they follow. Or their nationality or sex.

    You can never do this. Only *I* can do this.

    Seriously, to the question….IDK, I refuse service for all sorts of reasons… I am more mercurial then most… so, there is that. :P

    If I ran a shop, which is what it is like being online these days, well, IDK. When I get drunk and throw out my family jewels, I often like to escape. Which is denial of service in the ‘run and hide’ sort of way.

    Why do I do this? Because, ‘don’t throw your jewels before swine, they will just trample it then come and rend at you’. So, I try and keep my family jewels intact.

    But, I have a lot of jewels, so inevitably, I do this. Especially when drunk. En Vino Veritas. (Not swearing by that, I can really lie up a storm when pitch black drunk, too, if I think it is some kind of counterintelligence covert thingy.)
