Have Some Cheese With Your Whine?

There’s been a few questions asking me about my comments exchange with some thunderf00t fans and what started it. Between YouTube’s confusing comments system and Thunderf00t’s fans obsessively thumbing down my comments (silencing tactic) people are confused as to how it started.

So I thought I’d do a brief post for posterity’s sake and those who care.

The entire thing was set off because some of Thunderf00t’s fans were offended that I suggested I would wear a t-shirt at a conference making fun of the woman who wore the anti-skepchick t-shirt (I was making a point about how to properly handle criticism).

That’s it. People who thought SurlyAmy was acting ridiculous about a woman wearing a t-shirt that mentioned her group were upset that I did not even wear a t-shirt at a conference. They were actually upset that I DISCUSSED wearing a t-shirt at a conference. So they started going after me in comments and thumbing down my comments to silence my speech.

Apparently what’s good for the goose isn’t good for the gander.

Sensitive lot, these Free Speech Warriors. 😀
