Female bloggers need to band together

Check this out (not work-safe):

Death threats against bloggers are NOT "protected speech"

Reading this horrified me. It damages my faith in humanity when not only are death threats and threats of sexual harm posted on the internet (anonymously, I might add, damn trolls), but the dimwits hosting the site leave it all up. This issue is getting huge press in the blogging community, and only one of the people responsible has appologised. It has me seeing red, not only as a feminist, but as someone who really wants the world to live up to my expectations. Apparently, I expect too much.

At any rate: if you can, show support for Kathy Sierra. If only by leaving a comment.
