I've just read Kathy Sierra's latest post (warning: not pleasant or light reading). I'm sick at the thought that anyone thinks that's legitimate speech. I'm pained for her, and for her family. I'm also pained for the who know how many other people suffer through this kind of harrassment without a way to speak out about it.
Kathy has been an inspiration (and favorite read) of mine for a while now. I hope that by taking a stand about it, she can make a difference.
Kathy, let me know if there's anything I can do. I hope you're fear free soon, and that we all get to keep reading the wonderful, thought-provoking posts that have kept us coming back to your blog.
