Prof seems a bit touchy. On the other hand, your generation is among the most disrepectful toward education and educators in history. You can thank your parents and politicians for keeping you ignorant.
What is the subject anyway?

Proposed censorship rules are indeed antithetical to Voat but that won't stop moderators from imposing themselves on any given subverse. Freedom of speech and association viz a vie a subverse is about the only thing Voat has going for it. If free exchange of information is limited Voat won't last.
Everyone seems to like freedom of speech in theory but the minute someone is offended or outraged when it is practiced, the call for walls goes up. Voat has a system in place that enables individual users to block individual subverses from their individual accounts. I have used this service to block what I perceive to be racist or grisly subverses and no one is the wiser. I like that I can always check in to read what people are thinking and feeling on those subverses every once in awhile if for no other reason than that having a so-called world view requires me to be familiar with opposing view points.
A forum where free speech is protected requires a certain level of maturity and a sharp intellect. Sure, there are ideas that offend me, piss me off, and outrage me on Voat, but those ideas should have the right to be expressed and protected. If you do have the courage to argue with someone, you always have the freedom to ignore them if their attacks become personal or you may simply choose not to participate in a subverse that you perceive is not intellectually honest or has a reputation for bullying. In that sense, it is no different from real life where we pick and choose our friends and our reading material based on reputation.
As far as the issue of science vs pseudo science goes, that is something you'll have to distinguish based on your level of knowledge and education. Sometimes how a subverse is labeled can be misleading.

Interesting logic. Reminds me of a General in Vietnam who told a reporter that his troops had to burn down a village in order to save it.

The kid was irresponsible period. There is no way that contraption comes anywhere close to resembling a clock. Police and school authorities should be praised for erring on the side of caution. Why risk childrens lives just to stay on the right side of political correctness?
