So I spend a lot of time on LiveJournal. One of my favourite communities is Metaquotes, found at http://community.livejournal.com/metaquotes. Funny and occasionally deep quotes found all over LJ.
So today, I was linked to a blog post by the sci-fi author John C Wright. My first reaction was, of course, 'who?' but I decided to take a wander over and check out what all the fuss was about.

Of course, the big bad bigot had to go and disable all commenting except for his friends because like most assholes, he can dish it out but he sure can't take it. And I read most, if not all, of the comments people left. Yes, all 800+. The majority of them were... well, not polite, but certainly not Internet RAEG. People were angry, but they were pretty eloquent about it. Then he went and posted some sort of new response here: http://johncwright.livejournal.com/272446.html. Probably so he could get buttpats from the sycophants, who are the only ones now allowed to comment.
Grow some balls, John. You put it out on the internet, but you don't have the guts to stand up for your convictions and have to erase fucking everything?
I will not be buying your books. I may even boycott the publisher unless and until they drop your homophobic ass. I'm still awaiting a reply from my e-mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org regarding their stance on this issue.
I'm hoping someone in the news media picks up on this, because I would love to get this everywhere.
EDIT: He baawwwleeted everything. However, there's is a cap here: http://community.livejournal.com/sf_drama/2425835.html?thread=371442923#t371442923
