Tim Blair Goes Too Far

No, I'm not talking about the 'Tim Blair Makes Fun of Margo's Appearance' debate. I'm referring to this:

PROVOCATIVE ONE-LETTER POST INTENDED TO LURE COMMENTS

j


Really! One letter posts? It might have seemed like a fun idea at the time, but it's not too difficult to imagine what might happen. Soon people might be posting a 'g', or a 'f' or even single items of punctuation such as '?', ',' and '-' - for the sole purpose of stimulating comments. Soon, offensive messages such as -

'hgoenh[lkdwlm'

might be posted on the internet.

Oh, sure, there's nothing wrong with a 'j' - but think of where it might lead. It's a slippery slope, people!

or the thought provoking:

?

Or what about:

Never neglect the literary power of the ampersand!
