emphasis mine

The birthday cake was fake, with a top that looked like a cake but concealed a device underneath, created by the CIA’s technical operations wizards, called the jack-in-the-box. The CIA knew that KGB surveillance teams almost always followed a car from behind and rarely pulled alongside. It was possible for a car carrying a CIA officer to slip around a corner or two, momentarily out of view. In that brief interval, the CIA case officer could jump out of the car and disappear. At the same time, the jack-in-the-box would spring erect, a pop-up that looked, in outline, like the head and torso of the case officer who had just jumped out.

There was a time where it seemed like we barely even needed to talk about this: Joel had won the argument, the Internet agreed that private offices were the future, and only incompetent management (or a tight budget) was still putting developers in cubicle farms. A glorious future lay before us.

NO RIGHT TO A VISA

You don't have a "right" to a visa to visit a foreign nation-state, sorry. If people don't want you in their country, the problem might be you. This is not censorship. 

RIGHT TO WASTE TIME

#antivaxxers   much like 9/11 conspiracy theorists, should find something more productive to do with their time, other than decrease herd immunity and increase the incidence of preventable deaths.  

RIGHT TO BE DISGUSTING AND IGNORANT

The disgusting use of the #charliehebdo  tragedy to claim victimhood, by comparing those who disagree with you to terrorists, is so far off the charts of acceptability it only leaves the conclusion that Meryl Dorey is an extremist. Nice work Ms. Dorey, you've successfully shown yourself to be unfamiliar with basic tenets of civil society and rule of law. 

NO RIGHT TO A PRIVATE VENUE

You do not have a "right" to have your ridiculous event at any given commercial venue. This is called "freedom." Freedom of those who own and run those venues to choose not to be associated with you and your harmful agenda.
Accusation of censorship comes as more Australian venues cancel seminars by US anti-vaccination campaigner Sherri Tenpenny

Look at it this way: it's a "teachable moment!" Perhaps we need more civics and debate classes for adults in community colleges. Champions of causes and policies must have the basics, 

What one really wants is a better class of opponent, so one can respectfully debate issues which aren't complete nonsense.

We've always been proud supporters of the WTF with Marc Maron podcast, and we're thrilled to be making history as the sponsor of President Barack Obama's unprecedented podcast interview, presented commercial free. Too hear the president's take on everything from race relations to fatherhood and check out photos from the interview, visit marcmeetsobama.com.

Not sure about that, if we isolate the anti-vaxers together, don't we just create a place for polio, whooping cough and measles to morph into worse diseases and possibly overcome our vaccines.
