  • Hard News: Things we needed to hear,

    Wow, that thread on kiwiblog is something else...1 minutes worth of spittle was too much to handle.

    It's a shame. I used to read the Kiwiblog comments every day. Even though I never contributed I enjoyed the back and forth of debate.

    Now I'm afraid to even open the comments threads. The level of hatred shown towards women, gays and other minorities is so intense it's frightening.

    Having met David Farrar and found him to be a nice intelligent guy it's disappointing to see him not only tolerating but encouraging the sexism and bigotry his site is infested with. I don't understand it.

    Congratulations to Russell Brown for creating a discussion site that women feel they can safely participate in. Well done.
