warriors love their echo chambers, plus a major sign you're dealing with a cult

Just had my comments deleted from All Skulls On: Teaching Intersectionality through Halo. Le sigh. I think what I find most obnoxious about people who delete one person's comments but don't delete the responses to them is future readers are deprived of the context—but then, the point is to make it impossible for anyone to judge what a dissenter said. SJ warriors care about victory, not context.

To pretend deleting some comments is creating a "safe space" is very odd. If the discussion is "triggering", it should be entirely excised.

A copy of my first comment there is still at it's all one thing: Regarding Scalzi's "Lowest Difficulty Setting" and Teaching Intersectionality through Halo.

LATER: One of the first signs that you've landed at a cult's web site is when you find that polite disagreement is banned.
