Oy when will they learn?

Oy when will people on Twitter (and elsewhere) figure out that (trying to get) someone fired for expressing what you think are wrong ideas not only doesn't get you anywhere but it actually works against your cause by making everyone scared to say anything. So you don't get to engage with people and possibly change their minds, and their ideas calcify, and your hatred of them makes them even more rigid in their beliefs. There's nothing like open discourse for changing minds, and remember -- someone thinks every idea is wrong, even ones you hold dear.
