You know I am a strong advocate for the First Amendment but maybe time has come to block those from GretaWire who are just plain obnoxious.
I have had so many of you ask me to block the obnoxious, that I am now for the first time thinking about it. Disagreeing is not being obnoxious — but gratuitous nasty remarks are. And I have seen gratuitous nasty remarks made about / and by both Republicans and Democrats.
Since the obnoxious bloggers are free to go elsewhere, it would not be stepping on First Amendment rights — they are free to express their views elsewhere.
What do you think? Should I do it or not? You might not like who I decide is obnoxious and block. What has held me back a bit is the incredible volume of traffic here on GretaWire and thus the task of blocking could be daunting and, in some instances, even inadvertently unfair. I have not made up my mind yet….
