I found out from Shel that blogger Kathy Sierra has been the victim of threats, violent and sexual, from both anonymous trolls and not so anonymous ones. Inspired by Scoble’s actions, I’m choosing not to blog for a week, leaving this post at the top during that time. Distance allows cretins to feel like big men. It’s up to us to disallow this kind of behavior. We vote with our voices and our comments.
I’m encouraging anyone who follows suit to tag their post silenceforkathy.
