We’re not ideal and I’m sure this happens. That said, “lynch mob” and “drawn & quartered” seems like an overexaggeration.

We pile on downdings and we may insult and ridicule but that’s as far as it goes. We don’t doxx or go after people IRL or on other blogs they post at.

We are a nice family here. I respect and admire all the hard work that Charles has done to his house here. I am a proud lizard and value my ability to post. I believe the very high standards that Charles holds himself to filters down through to us, making us all better posters.

With very rare exception, no we don’t. Hence I’ve been happy to hang out since ‘08. As it so happens, I stand well to the right of most around here, and I’m treated with the respect I’m happy to return. I learn more from my friends that disagree than from those that do.

Yeah, that’s why I hang out here. I’ve seen the piling-on mentality take hold at other communities. It happens when there is groupthink, and a self-righteous attitude sets in.

The point of my post wasn’t to do a big “J’Accuse!” at LGF. It was to show that the instant social shaming that the web’s publish-many/read-many power makes possible sometimes taps into a side of humanity that seems baked into our underbrains. Even people of good will&character can gradually go astray. Don’t want to see it happen here.

(is it still concerntrolling, when you’re conscious that what you’re doing might fall into the category of concerntrolling? or is that yet another offshoot of Being Concerned?)

It depends. Did you wring your hands before typing this comment?

The day this site has ZOT festivals and Viking Kitties is the day I’m gone.

Although in the case of Justine Saccos, quite a few people here did take part in the online frenzy, though we didn’t aim hurtful tweets at her. This includes me, if I’m going to be honest, as I was rather enjoying the spectacle of a liberal (for that is how she comes across, then and in the article) being torn down by a Internet mob for having said something racist.

Call it the obverse of ‘go team, go’: “Laugh at the other team when one of them has a EPIC FAIL”.
