A leftist can be as insulting, asinine, or engage in ad-hominem on HN without problem, he'll get voted up for agreeing with the hive mind.

But a libertarian who shows up and makes a non-ad hominem comment, or even just links to a scientific paper that disagrees with the leftist ideology, and you get hellbanned.

HN will not tolerate critical thought.
