Some pro-Clinton bloggers are declaring a "writers' strike" on the lefty Daily Kos site.  One justified the decision on "the abusive nature of certain members of our community.”

Newsflash!?  Really?  If one wanted truly to encounter the "abusive nature" of some of the lefty netroots, try posting as a conservative on the Huffington Post web site.  The profanity, even the obscenity, of the vitriolic denunciation that fills one's email box after a post is almost unbelievable.

Let's hope the internecine warfare on the lefty side of the web will alert the well-meaning people there that there's a real problem with the way some of their less-polite compatriots conduct themselves.
