This happens on many popular sites such as Facebook, Quora, Linkedin or Reddit among others. Activist groups hunt out opinions that are detrimental to their cause and exploit the downvote system pls other tricks to get those opinions drowned out. Popular voices have their personal watchers. Those voices are also violently attacked in orde to muffle them. Much like secret police acted in some of the most totalitarian states this planet has seen. It’s important to take a stance for freedom. There are many I don’t agree with but if they remain respectful (which the majority is) I will fight tooth and claw for their right to express those ideas I don’t agree with. If we lose freedom of expression, we lose our humanity.
