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.
