So when PJ was on-side about SCO she was a saint; now she's chosen the "wrong" side in the GPL debate, she's at best a batty old woman, at worst an career-wrecking censorious harridan.
Riiiight. I'm now going to make the same mode of argument against you that you made against her: You're a misogynistic horse's arse.
Not very useful, is it?
"Maureen O'Gara, whose career Pamela destroyed"
As I recall, Ms O'Gara destroyed her own career by getting so cross with PJ that she published her contact details and invited her readers to harrass her in person.
Have you *seriously* just equivocated 'deleting a comment with a clear explanation of why' with 'trying to summon a lynch mob'?
"She scans the post for anything that anyone could possibly consider offensive, and removes it if she thinks anyone might possibly agree."
Right, so enforcing a stated comments policy without exception or favour is "censorship"?
Of course it isn't. Her site; her rules; she doesn't owe anyone a platform, not even Linus (or RMS); and someone who prides themselves on their objectivity is hardly likely to endanger that by exempting famous names from a stated comments policy.
Come back with some examples of where she has explicitly refused to enforce the same comments policy, and you might have a point. Until then... see above, with particular reference to equine hindquarters.
