I dont know, crazy people on the web?  Why would that happen.  I can't believe, crazy people, crazy people.

They should just get the police or FBI involved and let them track them down.  Why is Scoble being such a wuss.

this is what makes bloggers so fucking pussy.

How many bloggers died covering OIF/OEF in Iraq and Afghanistan? This is why I chafe when bloggers are equated with members of the press.

You want to be a news reporter? Well Dan Rather got a death threat on live national TV.

You want to write a nice fucking webpage? Pack your bags and go home you fucking sissy pants.

Kathy mentions me prominently in her post. I am mortified by what happened and have done my best to help her through this. I will post a more detailed response at some time in the future when my own shame and anguish has diminished enough to permit clarity.

Penitence is a good thing, Frank. But seriously, when you're "in bed" (your words on Kathy's site) with sites like MeanKids and BobsYerUncle, those sorts of posts are par for the course. Disgusting, but typical. You can't really be surprised.

If you're really ashamed at what happened to Kathy (and not just the bad press for you), I'd say its time for some soul searching on the philisophical bed you're in.

Yes, I've been doing some soul searching, Mark. The apology and communication with Kathy was little enough in itself. Mom had some good cliches like "You lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas," and "Birds of a feather flock together." Many of these dogs have been my friends for a long time. I expect they will each own the responsibility for their own transgressive speech, as I do for mine.

Kathy has twice accepted my apology (including in a comment by Bert on her blog post). I hope her posse can do the same.
