@johnjohnston Sometimes it surprises me the people who get hooked by those stories. I had a friend try to convince me the other day that universities are effectively shut down because when they try to lecture on certain topics where the thinking has changed, anyone who doesn't like to hear any outdated content will immediately shout down the professor and take over the class.
Like, I'm sure it happens. I'm sure there's some 90 year old professor somewhere who still thinks that Columbus was a pure-and-simple hero and will brook no argument, and I'm sure that professor (and those of his ilk) occasionally get a shout-down. But the idea that this is some sort of epidemic that's destroying the university system is just ridiculous.
