Today's Deep Thought

JMS (Creator of B5) has had some recent troubles from a website, and called them on it. The matter seems to be over, but the discussion continues. Here's a bit I find most interesting and enlightening.

And that's been the curse of the net ever since its inception.

The rule of the game is that it's okay to say anything you want, about anybody, no matter how offensive or incorrect...but to defend yourself (or someone else), to take the person to task for it, THAT'S somehow wrong, it means you can't stand the heat, or you're infringing their right to speak, or being rude, or somesuch.

It's carte blanche for the assholes and the nutcases and the rude folk to say any damned thing they want, no matter how untrue, hurtful, or libelous. And most astonishing of all is that people buy INTO this bullshit.

The ones who badrap everybody the most, who feel that they have the right to do whatever they want to other people, are always the ones who go most bugfuck when somebody goes after THEM in return. THAT they don't like, THAT is unfair.

It's the logic of the guy who pees in the pool 'cause he thinks its fun.
