Offensive comments and mail

Recently there have been several bloggers
who upon receiving a cascade of offensive
comments and/or messages have decided to
either stop blogging (temporarily or even
permanently) or turn off the comment facility. Needless to say that I find the behaviour of those who send offensive or demeaning comments unacceptable. Certainly one has the right to free expression including those who send offensive messages. However, a common sense of civility should be accepted on free will. Specifically, my friends silkysmoothlegs3 and FreeLove999 have been treated in ways that do not befit civilized people. Perhaps they expressed some ideas that are not popular with some, or simply they are not liked. This does not - under any circumstances - make them inferior to others. They are valued, interesting members of the human society and of this site. They do not deserve to be mistreated by anybody in anyway. People who do not like them for whatever reason should simply look elsewhere.
The mentioned bloggers do not need my advocacy but I had to break my silence on this issue because it has become really serious.

Jeeze, not again. What's not to like about these two bloggers?

Silky is sweet and is always nice and polite. Her blog is a fun place to visit.

FreeLove has proven herself to be stalwart in her convictions, and I have a great deal of respect for her as a result of this.

Baseless bloggers will always be a bane to us here in BlogLand. It is the way of the world unfortunately. I say don't sweat it. The majority of readers will ignore the dolts, and support those under malicious attack.

Blog On!

i agree.
something happened to sensuallykatey as well
(i don't know how they justify removing her profile-i've never read anything less than positive from her?)
i don't know what to do.
