The Astroturf Incivility Lament

Some of you may remember the posts on this blog about the Dalton video, and of course, many of you know that "civility" has been used to try to keep people quiet around here.

Below is an email from the Department of Ecology. Is it odd that persons demanding civility post a blog article and anticipate less than civil responses? Could that be because they know the blog article is inflammatory? Just askin’.

Makes it seem like the whole public incivility lament has been an orchestrated red herring.

Subject: blog article, Ecology response to Dalton case

Thought you might be interested in a blog article Gordon White posted yesterday evening regarding our role in the Dalton case.

I suspect some of the feedback will be less than civil.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Cheers, Erik

    What a cozy little club -- or is it mutual admiration society? ("You are so smart." "No, YOU are." "You are so ecological!! No, YOU are!!)
