continuing. UChicago and safe spaces. The comments On Farrell's post gone from bad to worse.
repeats, here and here and the relevant tag.
censorship |ˈsɛnsəʃɪp|
noun [ mass noun ]
1 the suppression or prohibition of any parts of books, films, news, etc. that are considered obscene, politically unacceptable, or a threat to security: the regulation imposes censorship on all media |[as modifier]: we have strict censorship laws.
Logical corollaries/matched mistakes: referring to the act of shouting someone down as censorship; claiming that shouting someone down is protected free speech.

And a post that made me laugh. I was wondering when someone was going to say it
This is the elephant in the room: At Chicago, humiliation is not something that is only meted out to victims of rape or people of color. The university has a rich history of relentless, badgering meanness — both in how its faculty treat each other, and in how they treat its students. And this attitude has been a part of the institution for a long time.
