The Internet, through blogs and forums, has made it possible for just about anyone who wants to say something in public to do so. Some who were able to say something in public by means of the limited number of outlets available previously apparently do not like this. Huge numbers of foolish and false things have been said in print, are being said still, and will continue to be said. The same is true of blogs and Internet forums - only the volume is much greater. It is a messy business, but life is messy. Still, in the long run it is good that information is less controlled and that more and more people can not only speak up, but be heard. It's not anything to be afraid of.
