Fish in a Barrel

Noam Chomsky has a blog now. And it has a comments section. Go say hi. And be nice. I don’t want to send him any trolls.
UPDATE: Chomsky’s comments section is a nightmarish place swarming with freaks and trolls. It’s worse than I expected. A lot worse. This is not going to be a pleasant experience for him unless he shuts down the comments.
And that’s too bad. My own comments section is invaluable, and I’m more careful about what I say now that I’ve switched to Movable Type (which has comments built in) and you all can yell at me and tell me I’m full of it.
Good feedback and debate might have made Chomsky smarter and more reasonable. But no. It will never happen. He has too many passionate enemies. He has no choice but to continue to wall himself off from reality.
UPDATE: Chomsky’s comments have been disabled. That became inevitable almost instantly.
