In order to have a discussion there has to be something worth discussing, and there isn't. An ignorant bigot was deplatformed, and it was deserved.
Hopefully the changes to the partner program mean that bigots aren't able to get platforms in the first place, and that DE doesn't allow disingenuous cries for 'civility' and 'diversity of thought' to be weaponized against outspoken minorities in the community, as almost always happens.
Of course it is toxic. It's just that they're not actually interested in stifling toxicity. What they're interested in is targeting someone they don't like. They either lack the self-reflection to realize that that's what they're after or they're very well aware of it, but know they can't admit it publicly without discrediting themselves. So instead they'll play semantic games that grant paper thin legitimacy to their bad faith arguments and plausible deniability that that's what they're doing.
