Scientists seek to shutdown negative online comments about science

"Preserving Science News in an Online World"

FLATOW: So do you believe that they should be moderated, these blogs?

ZIVKOVIC: Yes, I think the ideas about comment amelioration have changed over the past, you know, 10 or 15 years, that these things exist online. In the beginning, I think there was the idea that this should be a free forum. And now there are so many free fora out there that I don't think a site like Scientific American should provide a free form for everything and everybody and all kinds of online fights to happen in our comments because I think the free speech applies to the Web as a whole, not to any particular site.And I think the host of the site has to keep in mind what is the goal of the site, what is the reason why the site exists. If it's educational, then these kinds of comments need to go. And it's perfectly OK. It's perfectly legal to do it. So I think we need to have our readers in mind first and act appropriately.

Pretty much most of science is corrupted. From clinical studies, to research grants and sacred cows etc. Take a look at this, for instance:

I had to look up the word ameliorate

to make a bad or unpleasant situation better

Foreign aid is badly needed to ameliorate the effects of the drought.
amelioration noun

how will this make things better?
I agree on educational sites to filter the nonsense but what else can this achieve?
