It's always nice to see our "progressive" brothers taking misogyny and violence against women seriously.
Markos on Kathy Sierra and female bloggers being harassed and getting death threats:
Look, if you blog, and blog about controversial shit, you'll get idiotic emails. Most of the time, said "death threats" don't even exist -- evidenced by the fact that the crying bloggers and journalists always fail to produce said "death threats".
So let me get this straight: blogging about the oh-so-controversial world of software development means you should expect to get death threats. After all, nothing brings out the crazies like tech-talk. And besides, she probably made it all up anyway.
...Email makes it easy for stupid people to send stupid emails to public figures. If they can't handle a little heat in their email inbox, then really, they should try another line of work.
I mean come on, if you can't handle your address and social security number being published along with threats of rape, hanging, suffocation and death--you're a fucking lightweight...

Meanwhile, not very far away: different bullshit! similar stench!
Via feministing: Kos sez death threats are nothing to worry about, ladieez; you can all stop worrying your pretty little heads about it. or else just stop...being public. I guess.
