Scott Aaronson, quantum complexity theorist and debunker of quantum hype on scottaaronson.blog/, is also a target of trolls who have pushed him to back down from his free-speech principles and restrict comments (scottaaronson.blog/?p=6552). Boaz Barak gives some support: windowsontheory.org/2022/07/13

Via Boaz I found Scott's 2005 "NP-complete Problems and Physical Reality" (arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0502072) debunking soap bubble and rubber band solvers for hard optimization problems. Worth a re-read!
