Allow it? It can’t be stopped.

I saw an interesting bit on how the best way to stop fake news would be to flood cyberspace with facts. I think something similar applies here. No, we aren’t going to pick up everyone, but a fair bit of the current pseudodebate — I’m paraphrasing and perhaps overstating from Oreskes’ work — stemmed from a perceived need to lend equal voice to opposing opinions, even when the opposition is a miniscule minority, unqualified in the field, or has a conflict of interest.
