the dark side of the moon

We do all believe that blogosphere is a pleasant place where meet friends and learn useful stuff and, yes, eventually make some business and money.
Well, that's no longer true to me.
Not after what I read this morning.
At Steve Rubel's place I got this post about a blogger, Kathy Sierra, who received serious death threats.
This is the link to her original post: it's disturbing and scaring.
But do me a favour: read it and think about it.
This seems no longer to be a game.

Hey G ... the links don't seem to work. But you are right, what might have started out as a game has gotten out of hand.

Official Burt Young Website Launch!

The official website of Burt Young has been launched. Burt Young, the Academy Award nominated actor and maverick artist, has launched a wonderful display of paintings. The website is a literal library describing milestones, film and art. He can be browsed at: http://burtyoungartandfilm.com/

this is a real unlucky post:

- the topic is ugly
- links do not work
- the spam get in

This is the kind of thing that really makes you question the inherent good in people- do they really possess it or not? Kathy is a very strong and smart woman- I hope for her, and all of us, that these people are found and brought to "justice"- whatever that might mean.

I still believe in good, I do... but these people put a smudge on that.

welcome back, tim. don't ask where you are or what time is it now. i've lost you in your last stop somewhere in far east :-)
the more i read about this story, the more seems to me a crazy situation.
but, overall, this kind of acting is really to be deplored

Sadly, this is what happens when children think they can say whatever they want online, and that there are no consequences for their actions. It appears that some of them are about to get a big lesson in just how wrong they are.

on the other way, this is a price to pay to get the freedom of speach on line.
