Then they came for me
And there was no one left to speak out for me.

Another line can be added to that poem.
Then they came for the Skeptics
(or Climate Deniers or whatever the Put-down-du jour is.)
So I have decided that an honor roll for those skeptics and deniers who get booted from Twitter is in order.
I’ll start with Tony from Real Science, aka Steve Goddard:
