Had a glance at the website, but it seems to be a functional safe space. First eight posts were on: Antifa, Comey-Russia, Boots on the ground in Chicago, Polish PM saying "Make Europe Christian Again" (with positive response), "Migrants" later called "asylum seekers" in France, a pro-Trump post, Rape in Sweden, and Twitter purging alt-righters. Regardless of how valid each of these posts were, it's hard to deny that the website is clearly attracting a certain group of people, so it functions as a safe space, whether it fits the exact definition or not. Reminds me a lot of Minds, which similarly attracts a narrow group of people, despite de jure being open.

Oops, forgot that yous both have Aspergers which makes you completely unable to understand anything beyond the letter of the law, and anything that isn't official must not exist. You lot must be the life of the party.
