Dear Melissa,
 Sorry, but I must disagree. There are moderators for this list. If they believe a post is inappropriate they will block it. 
As for the professor creating a hostile environment, I doubt there were any students in that class who were offended or felt threatened by his words. Any sense of despair an aspiring marine biologist might feel was more likely the result of the reasonable expectation of a coming wave of anti-science sentiment.

Dear  Steve, 
This list is politics free.  Posting political messages puts the list at risk.   Everyone, please try to keep this in mind as we move forward.  
I would comment that the college professor who wrote that open letter has created a hostile environment for students who do not hold his political beliefs.  
take care,

I imagine that many of us are trying to wrap our minds around all the implications ......... . To the marine science community, ............... I thought that this letter written by a college professor to his coastal and estuarine ecology students might provide some much needed encouragement and motivation. .................
