I have just read Kathy Sierra's blog tonight and been totally shocked. She has recieved death threats and some rather nasty images of her have been posted. She is quite rightly terrified. Being a woman and new to blogging - this is not what I want to hear. The blogosphere is about free speech yes, but misogyny and violence - a big NO.
The shear number of supportive comments is testament to Kathy's appeal. She writes some great stuff and I for one will be will watching how this crazy situation rights itself. If you can't play nicely - then go home.
