Mat Staver Is Maad at GLAAD

Good As You: Mat Staver So Mad at GLAAD He Can't Keep Even One Fact Straight

Just a bit of the crazy for you, if you can stand to listen to the audio in the above link.

The backstory is that there was an Adam Lambert interview posted at Yahoo. The trolls commenced their obsessing over how evil gay people are and said some really heinous things about Adam, including invoking violence against him.

Fans alerted GLAAD, who contacted Yahoo! and asked them to remove the hateful comments. Eventually, they got tired enough of babysitting that they disabled comments altogether.

If I ever post anything Adam Lambert related on YouTube (Unlikely, since I don't post much of anything there), I will disable comments right away, because I've seen how anything related to him on their site always brings on the gay/anti-gay debate, when that's not even what the videos are about. Trolls are boring, really.

The point of the "Good As You" post is this: Yahoo!, Facebook, Live Journal, etc., are not places where free speech takes place - not if you don't know how to behave. It's called "Terms of Service." The point also is, of course, that Mat Staver (who's apparently named after a rug) doesn't know how to behave, either.

You want free hate speech, you'll have to design and OWN your own website. So, there.
