It all serves a purpose. Let people write whatever they want. If they find an audience for their ideas- fantastic. The internet is the perfect capitalist environment- almost no barrier for entry nowadays.
It is people like Ryan Davis that make me desperately wish that I could believe in life after death.

26, Male, LDS (Mormon). From California, currently in school in Utah. Even though I am relatively heterodox (as I believe true Mormonism ought to be heterodox, questioning, and iconoclastic, as opposed to the dogmatists) I am very active. I believe that many Mormons nowadays (especially in Utah) have built a social bubble that has made them complacent. There is tremendous social pressure to not rock the boat.
