nazi punching vs spread of good ideas 

I'm all for nazi punching, blocking, and defederating.

But I don't think we should be casual about free speech either. I'm a leftist because of the ideas I saw expressed on the web over the past twenty years. If everyone adopts a convention of locking things down, maybe the next naive centrist like my younger self won't be able to find the content and conversations to wise up.

I don't have answers, I'm just worried.

@mike I agree with your thoughts, it's definitely a hard balance to strike, but must take a stand on a side nonetheless. As someone maintaining a platform of some sort, I can't let it slide either so it's a tricky situation. Politics and technology are getting closer and closer, and it's not a nice shift.
