Google Fantastic initiative by Google. Anna Peirano details: "Google is launching a new campaign called 'Legalize Love' with the intention of inspiring countries to legalize marriage for lesbian, gay, and bisexual people around the world. The 'Legalize Love' campaign officially launches in Poland and Singapore on Saturday, July 7th. Google intends to eventually expand the initiative to every country where the company has an office, and will focus on places with homophobic cultures, where anti-gay laws exist." As proud as I am of living in the first country to legalise same-sex marriage, it's easy to forget we only did so in 2000. Also, it's about time the large technology companies of the world started using their power, reach, and money to do good. Hopefully, this initiative will transcend company boundaries, uniting them behind a common, noble goal.

Seems we have traded placeS, now your attacking Thom and I'm defending him. :-p

But it is strange that the "bug" only happens here. It does seem like human intervention, but let's wait what the Dutch One says.

Not attacking, just disgusted right now. But I'll try to keep a "wait and see" mindset about it.

Well, it is Thom's blog. So if he likes to censor, is his right and so be it. If he likes to alienate the members, so be it.

A more mature way to act would be to let user mod the comments by voting the comments up or down. That was one of the roles of the voting system.

However this is only a small place and there are many IT news sites and blogs.
