The superb group blog: Our Word and Welcome to It is fast becoming the standard bearer for civility in the blogosphere. (some days they are THE standard bearer). After every extreme action, I've noticed, and so have the Hadleybloggers of Our Word, that blog civility frequently takes a dive. It is especially dismaying to see this kind of vitriol on, supposedly, Catholic blogs. Check that: It is dismaying period. If you are going to take the trouble to post your words for public consumption, try to be polite.
If you aren't reading Our Word and Welcome to It, you should be.
