Anil Dash vs. the haters

Read Anil’s Dash lengthy, patient discussion of the contretemps between himself and the readers of Little Green Footballs.
Anil considers the real issue to be the hatred and vitriol that risk sidetracking legitimate political speech and organization against Islamic extremism.
In the midst of this he also makes it clear that the pack mentality of some of the readers of LGF and likeminded warblogs does a disservice to and threatens to discredit the political agenda of these bloggers.
By not repudiating the hate speech, and by sloppily aiming his readers in a mob at Anil’s blog, posted to his blog, the author of LGF is cultivating toxic memes in a petri dish.
