The SJW acronym still has meaning. I think we can both agree that legitimate death and rape threats are unacceptable. That being said, people who could be considered social justice warriors are tremendously quick to flip out over any perceived threat to their personal narrative. They use underhanded, mob-like tactics to force their distorted definition of life on everyone else.

No, she did not. Also, Nostradamus didn't predict Hitler or the September 11th attacks. As for the ethics of the issue, that's a tough one.

With proper regulations, it can be controlled in a safe, ethical manner.

I wish I could upvote this more, because you are 100% correct. A viable solution needs to be implemented prior to pointing fingers. Sadly, I don't see that happening. It's too easy for people to sit in judgement, rather than getting their hands dirty.

The UNIX philosophy basically involves giving you enough rope to hang yourself. And then a couple of feet more, just to be sure.
