As many of you have read already, an amazing blogger, Kathy Sierra (Creating Passionate Users) has been attacked and harassed through her blog with disgusting and violent thoughts and pictures. If you aren’t up to date with it, please head HERE and read up on it, it will shock you, and hopefully move you to do something about it. Many bloggers around the different topic spheres have commented on it regretting that something like this is happening, and voicing their concern and rejection towards violent acts in the blogosphere.

In my own opinion, I think something like this is unacceptable in a social community which was started as a beautiful medium to express freedom and which embodies the best freedom of all: ..of speech! I created this two logos for us to share around and post in our blogs. Not because I think we need to voice ourselves for this one issue primarily, but because this is a great way to stand up against violence in the blogosphere once and for all. If we stay together, just as the way this movement was started, we will sure enough be stronger than a couple of perpetrator and violators that feel the need to attack perhaps the greatest of freedom of speech lovers: bloggers.
If you can spare a post and pass around the logos I would deeply appreciate it. Not only to show our support to Kathy, which hopefully will keep on doing the amazing job she has been doing up until now, but to raise awareness that this isn’t acceptable in our society anymore, and that we won’t tolerate this kinds of actions.
