The "Woroni" controversy

Note that I am a supporter of free speech based in Ireland.
Woroni have nothing to do with this page and probably do not approve of it.

"Woroni" is the student newspaper of the Australian National University, Canberra.
What happened when they decided to run a series slagging off the world's religions sums up what is wrong with Islam, and what is wrong with the West's reaction to Islam.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I will debate almost anyone. Stick to ideas and I will debate you. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

The Twitter dark age, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. With the arrival of Elon Musk in 2022, Twitter's dark age of censorship may end. Let's hope so.

I am also on Parler at markhumphrys. I am on Gettr at markhumphrys.
