Default Re: What a difference a day (or two) makes...

Ann savaged Farley very recently recently, on our beloved site.

Maybe Ann presented her case in an excessively histrionic manner, but her essential Farley-related point appears strong: Bloggers should evince genuine reluctance when troll-tarring--and banning--dissident commenters. All too often, comments-admins accrue naked egoistic satisfaction banning mob-hated commenters.

Farley's speech-policing practices merit consideration--and response.

Of course all disputants should reject Ann's hyper-personalization--but her core complaint is worthy of response.
