Scaring off people we don't want here 

There's a bunch of new people here recently, so I think I'll say a few things that will scare off many of the sorts of people that we don't want here

It is the official policy of scholar.social that:

🍍 Nazis should have their speech curtailed at every opportunity
🍍 Supporters of Jordan Peterson or Milo Yiannopoulos—leave now
🍍 There is no such thing as "reverse racism"
🍍 Vaccines don't cause autism, and for that matter, autistic people are equally valuable!

@socrates Point 2 ^ Ben Shapiro, Donald Trump

No point in missing them out, either. :B

I would use line editor syntax, but..I don't know it. :B

@socrates Another way, in a more formal setting to filter out people like that, is to plaster code of conduct everyone.

Then before anyone can join a community, have a dialog -- "do you agree to follow code of conduct?"

Whoever says 'no' gets booted out.
It is so weird that this has become a shorthand:

free speech = nazis
code of conduct = nazis will be banned

@avolkov There's already a checkbox on scholar.social for "I agree to the server rules"

And yet
