A Story from The Times today that you might like to comment on:
"Blogs typically do not add to the available stock of commentary: they are purely parasitic on the stories and opinions that traditional media provide.”
'In The Guardian, Jonathan Freedland pointed out that the abusive, vitriolic nature of many blogs had turned the blogosphere into a “claustrophobic environment, appealing chiefly to a certain kind of aggressive, point-scoring male — and utterly off-putting to everyone else”. Freedland’s crucial point is that the anonymity made possible by web protocols is at fault. People find it easy to behave badly if nobody knows who they are.'
Ed: So is Freedland right? Do people find it easy to behave badly if nobody knows who they are?
