Some have griped for years that it'll hurt the movement. BUT...

Hasn't the movement actually grown?

You've only been here for 1 1/2 yrs, so you may not know that this debate over whether ~conspiracy theories/theorists~ will hurt the movement has gone on for years.

But realize that more and more issues that were deemed ~fringe~ or ~kooky~ not so long ago are not considered so kooky or fringe now.

While you may not like some opinions on certain topics that irritate you, you yourself have indulged in some rather lively discussion on those topics.

I don't care for the insult slinging and name calliing (from either side), but I have learned quite a bit, as a lot of info is put forth in that bantering.

I'd much rather see exposing/education (that apparently seems to be working as more are becoming informed and aware), even if that means some heated and emotional discussions, than to see this place wither out of fear that someone might be put off because something they didn't like was being discussed on a thread here.

Think about this. What does it say if people in the liberty movement cannot explore issues that pertain to liberty in a liberty-oriented site?
