While most comments on the post agreed with the blogger, there were some that didn't agree:
“By admonishing each other to stay silent, we're weakening our ability to respond to criticism with humor and perspective.”and
“I for one, will not be silenced just to be sweet and polite and compliant and oh so politically correct...never ever. Never.”They are confusing civility with censorship. Come on, people! There is a time and place for everything. Use your intelligence to respond thoughtfully and not spout off the first negative, hurtful thing that comes to mind – even if it is your “right.” Your message will then more likely be taken seriously and not dismissed as a rant from a nut case or hate monger.
That’s all the blogger was really saying. Be thoughtful.
