Kathy Sierra

26 03 2007

You’ve probably heard about this, but if not: A wordpress.com blog was pulled for hosting obscene content and death threats against another blogger, Kathy Sierra. What galls me is the sense I get from some quarters that she’s “overreacting”–like women fly off the handle, or it doesn’t “count” somehow if someone threatens them. “Ah, it’s just a bit of fun; lighten up, baby!”

Here’s Kathy’s post detailing the threats; some of you may find this disturbing. To give you a sense of what makes her a true A-list blogger, I suggest reading her post Seven blog virtues.

As for why Bridlepath should mention this…she’s part of the tribe, for one thing, but more importantly, I believe that harassments and threats have no more place online than they do in real life.
