Don't do it, Kathy Sierra. Don't NOT blog anymore. She has mentioned that she may not continue blogging anymore. And all because of some heinous and intense death threats! And coming from, she says, from a source [made up of many] calling itself "meankids". Now isn't that a dead give away? Mean kids. And that's the crux of the reason why I say, "Hang in there, Kathy."
Blog Bullying takes place all the time in the blogsphere. Many, many blogs "close down" from the pressure and challenge of conflict. And I'm not talking about the pressure and challenge of being an author and "saying something relevent and exciting, etc., etc." to keep the blog alive. I'm talking about caving in to being personally offended and afraid of (or horribly frightened about) what others out in the blog world say "right up front to your face". Don't chicken out, Kathy.
It seems to me that someone (or someones) is trying to run Kathy Sierra out of town. Or trying to indoctrinate her into a death cult or a BDSM fun group. Perhaps they're waiting for her to bite, after she's had "the messengers and messages" live inside her brain long enough.
In this situation, she's doing the right thing right now. She's telling as many people as she can what is going on with her. But one thing she shouldn't do is be afraid. She should hang in there.
Or is Kathy Sierra turning victimization into an art?
