Abusing the Brave New World

Someone commented recently that my blog site “seemed to accept very few comments”. The truth is, I can see no reason to accept comments which have nothing to say, or that don’t really further the debate.

But tonight, I received a comment on a story about Pepenbury, the independent living facility for adults with learning disabilities in Pembury. The comment simply said “It’s amazing” – which didn’t make a whole lot of sense.

I followed the link attached to this innocuous comment, and found a web site with the sickest content I’ve seen in a long time – largely focussed on the writer’s sister.

The web in general, and blogging in particular gives us all a chance to talk freely and share ideas and opinions. In this Brave New World, it’s a shame that some people are allowed to share that same licence.
