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.

    Hello – I used your graphic on my blog. Thanks for creating it.

    Ron, as you can see, I’ve taken the idea and suggested on Scobleizer a morph – really a considerable expansion – of it. Thanks for the inspiration. And I’m certainly no graphics designer. So, if “Zero Tolerance Internet” grabs you and others, feel free!

    Want to start your private office arms race right now?

    I just got my own USB rocket launcher :-) Awsome thing.

    Plug into your computer and you got a remote controlled office missile launcher with 360 degrees horizontal and 45 degree vertival rotation with a range of more than 6 meters – which gives you a coverage of 113 square meters round your workplace.
    You can get the gadget here: http://tinyurl.com/2qul3c

    Check out the video they have on the page.

    Cheers

    I’ve got an Amazon gift certificate burning holes in my pocket,
    and I want to get the most bang for my buck.

    Enter the Secret Amazon Web Pages:

    http://tinyurl.com/38sojf

    This is where you’re going to find the “latest sales, rebates, and limited-time offers” from
    Amazon, and you can score some pretty deep discounts if you’re a savvy shopper.

    Next, there’s the special Sale link. This is open every Friday, and ONLY on Fridays.

    You can find the same good discounts here as you would in hidden Deals, although some
    Fridays you can really get lucky and make off like an Amazon bandit – I’ve seen discounts
    there as low as 75% off sticker price.

    As a student growing up and deciding how to run my life i thought that it would good to leave an idea for fellow bloggers. I wanted to know what you think about violence in the city of Philadelphia and how it is a cause for concern. Also I would like to know if you think Grand Theft Auto is in anyway realated to violence among teenage youth or adults?
