> Moderate people are repulsed by such forums and the quantity of hate-speech they generate, which further compounds the negative feedback loop.

As a moderate I am not repulsed by the repulsive, I'm interested in understanding it, and I think all moderates are.

People have a fascination with what repulses us look at documentaries about murders, ww2 etc.

Todays problem is that moderates can not openly debate the extremists without themselves being labled as an extremist so their arguments can be dismissed, deplatformed and then used as justification for a personal attack.
