2. I'd imagine you wouldn't
Killtown is considered unacceptable because it incorporates and endorses materials from sites and individuals either directly associated with or with a strong affinity towards hateful material and memes. Many of these hate sites and individuals are expressly and deliberately utilizing conspiracy type theories to further their bigoted agenda by mainstreaming it in a way to appeal to the huge increase of distrust people are feeling as a whole.

As such, this puts people in the position to assume that killtown is supportive of such an agenda or lacks the editorial and critical acumen to understand the difference. Given the outcry and lack of response, people will probably assume the worse. No matter what, this makes killtown unacceptable for use.
