Yet it's much better than science being walled off and accessible only to a select few. And I say that as one of the select few...

Amen. Govts tax people to pay for research which they don't let them access. IMO they should also incentivize the authors to write a "Public Take-Away" section along with the Abstract.

Some journals do this now! PNAS, for example, has a "Significance" paragraph next to the abstract that they encourage writing in non-technical language.

Also, many funding bodies, like the NSF, have recently started demanding significant public outreach efforts as a condition for receiving grants.

it isnt. Based on the fake researchers on that site, manhaters trolled the mgtow article on wikipedia and now readers think that mgtow is a terrorist organization.

Do you also think "fake news" is a justified excuse for all the censorship on facebook? Open platforms carry lots of junk, that's the price we pay for not limiting information.

If it would depend on me, i already would have seized the domain of facebook and twitter. Not because of fake news, but because it turns people psychotic animalistic web-addicts.

Ok... But do you agree Memo is better because it lacks censorship? Part of what that means is that anyone can post garbage here, and you have to decide what to take seriously.

I haven't said to block their website. At least not from the internet. But definitely from the scientific life.
