Those of you interested in trolling (the “cross this bridge and I’ll eat you” kind, not the “anybody biting?” kind), should read a couple of recent threads. At Making Light is “The Bully Pulpit,” an examination in the abstract of dealing with misbehavior and drawing the line between behavior and being. It’s a short post with a very long comment thread, which I’m not done reading just yet, but which is remarkably thoughtful and, even while digressing, stays remarkably on topic.
Then, from Greg’s blog, an exercise in specifics in which the commentariat is polled: “What do we do about Mike H?” Um, ignore that bit where people are complimenting me, please. It’s the rest of the discussion, and the conclusion, that are interesting.
