    Why would I expect credit for it?

    It has been acknowledged, then comes the complexity.

    You do you, it doesn't make a good discussion though.

    We also don't support violence, racism or even cursing. What can be expressed is limited.

    Very, it has its own limitation set by the owners of it. I wrote this, you have not commented on it.

    I don't take it personally nor do I think the questions are hard, they are incomplete and ignore context and what I have already answered.

    This is just boring, I'd rather just do something else.

    Well I posted a 15 page article on the subject by an important thinker, and got this in return:
    Never mind, let's just disagree ...

    Ok. Granted. But also a responsibility to free speech, in a decent university
    The WAY it can be expressed. Not the idea itself. Unless it is violent or racist, or totally off topic on a faith forum?

    So, although it can obviously be related to many factors and causes, woke bullying, to me, is not a slightly irritating intellectual side issue. To me it is warping the whole course of politics and social relations in the early 21st century, and a major cause of opinion swing towards right wing populism.

    So yes, as a liberal person I believe the woke cancel culture movement has a lot to answer for.

    There's that saying about: 'for evil to flourish all that this required is for good people to say nothing'
