Comments: Boing Boing "Censorware'd" Banned-In-Boston - Dan's Guardian

BoingBoing quoted you. Last time I looked, BoingBoing outdraws Slashdot.

I could wish that I would be 'dismissed' as much as you are.

Ah, but that's not *blogging* about it. That's "Serving the A-list". There's a big difference between mailing a tip to a high-keeper-of-gates that he or she might like, and whatever reach I have on my own, which is comparatively trivial.

Remember, I had a huge amount of censorware research derailed and destroyed from Slashdot backing a vicious domain-hijacker. The lessons there are still relevant and in part suppress my further research.

maybe I am an idiot, but I couldn't find a direct link to Seth's blog or his work on this in either the boingboing or slashdot article or comments on /.

Please correct me where I am wrong.

I even searched the /. comments at -1 for one.

Not even anonymously Seth?

Nah. I don't bother commenting on Slashdot, not worth the trouble. Even anonymously, because of all the mud slung at me in the past from their backing you-know-who (that is, because I was tarred with the claim that anything done by an anonymous troll was in fact my work, I adopted the policy of not ever commenting anonymously - even if not logged-in, I left my name. Then I gave up. At this point, it just feels humiliating - "please, please, notice me, *squeak* *squeak* *squeak*").

Keep pulling the holes you find in the dyke restraining ignorance.

Slashdot IS hardly worth commenting upon. I think the wisdom of crowds has a tipping point too. Find venues with fewer loud voices and more perceptive listener/voters... better yet, just keep blogging and add readers based upon a similar view of the world.
