Call the cops! No wait, they can't help me. I am the one who will make the arrest here.
What? Arrest an information source?

Stop, look and listen.
Information sources that make you feel befuddled (as in "I don't get it”) or besmirched (as in “defiled”) are information sources to be exited ASAP.

You are in charge of “policing” your own research activity. How? By setting your own personal boundaries for what you view, read and listen to that take into account your age and core values.
