The deletion of posts mentioning Violet Blue has gotten some serious blogosphere and print media coverage. Boing Boing responded, in a way that makes pretty much sense really, but Violet Blue herself didn’t really chip in, more than by linking left and right. Well, no more, she’s had enough, so she’s answering what has been said quote by quote (not everything of course) in a recent blog post (ads are NSFW). With links and lots of reading. If you want to dive into this whole mess, that’s a good place to start, no matter what you think about Boing Boing’s actions.
