Question: Do Blogs Further Fragment Us?

Issue: The Great Blogosphere Brawl/Wendy McElroy,

More Info: An exchange on Protein Wisdom between Goldstein and Frisch turned so nasty that it landed in the mainstream media. On July 12, Brit Hume of FOX News reported, "Deborah Frisch escalated a foreign policy argument with blogger Jeff Goldstein last week, writing that if 'someone shot you and your 'tyke' it wouldn't slow me down one iota.' She also wrote that she hopes 'no one Jon-Benets' the child -- a reference to the brutal murder of a young Colorado girl ten years ago -- and made disturbing sexual remarks about the boy."

DFO: At least we can say, we've never gotten this out of hand.

Question: Obviously, we've seen that blogs can bring people together for a worthy cause, like the Behan formula drive here. Do you foresee a day when flames and flame warriors will be considered passe?
