I think it's time for us to remind ourselves that being an adult is risky business. And I'm beginning to think that posting any comments under a pseudonym is cowardly. Just beginning, mind you. But it's an idea that's taking hold.

I've commented on this at the Mahesh Butani article 'The Gyges Ring and the Local Media', so I'll limit myself to pointing out the we're dealing with an entirely different landscape here. Much as I'd love to believe grace and civility should be everywhere, it's not, and we can't expect all traditions to immediately pull through when we shift to another construct. This is going to take time and patience. (And don't forget, we're talking about an electronic society whose basic credo revolves around entitlement.)

And at this point, I'm going to defer to Undustrial's cogency: http://raisethehammer.org/comment/59782
