A new member has responded to a "SARS-CoV-2 synthetic origin" questions here and here with a "human origin" opinion expressed in a verbose, aggressive and non-technical manner.

I have now protected the questions.

I think the original question(s) are on-message. Phylogenetics has a long history of readdressing conspiracy that otherwise has potentially negative outcomes, e.g. threatening polio erradication in Africa e.g. here and here.

A dissenting voice is fine, but the lesson is protecting questions, meaning preventing posts from new users or low reputation users, is in fact a good idea. Perhaps delete most opinionated posts therein?

I have destroyed that user's account. We should have absolutely no tolerance for such people.
