A long and escalating read ?people complaining about the premise of community moderation should keep in mind what unchecked spreading of hate can lead to.

Did a Military Lab Spill Anthrax Into Public Waterways? New Book Reveals Details of a US Leak

quote [ Unsterilized laboratory wastewater from the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases at Fort Detrick, Maryland, spewed out the top of a rusty 50,000-gallon outdoor holding tank, the pressure catapulting it over the short concrete wall that was supposed to contain hazardous spills.

It was May 25, 2018, the Friday morning before Memorial Day weekend, and the tank holding waste from labs working with Ebola, anthrax, and other lethal pathogens had become overpressurized, forcing the liquid out a vent pipe. ]

Oh, silly Fort Detrick, what were all those weird respiratory disease outbreaks in 2019 centered around you all about?

Atlanta?s ?Cop City? Moves Ahead After Police Kill 1 Protester & Charge 19 with Domestic Terrorism

quote [ Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens announced Tuesday that a proposed $90 million police training facility known as ?Cop City? is moving forward, despite growing opposition and the police killing of a forest defender. Just weeks ago, law enforcement officers ? including a SWAT team ? were violently evicting protesters who had occupied a wooded area outside the center, when they shot and killed a longtime activist and charged 19 with domestic terrorism. ]

Occupying a tree house is domestic terrorism now, btw.

Really good podcast episode breaking down the background on Cop City in extended. It's not just gonna be a small little training ground for Georgia cops and firefighters, it's basically gonna be a domestic and international training ground for teaching suburban warfare.
