Moderation isn't rocket science

While we're on the subject of "blame human beings, not technology", here's a quote: 

Anonymous nastiness is easy to write, and will always find an appreciative audience. I don’t care. It’s not a manifestation of the free and open discourse of the internet; it’s a thing that destroys that discourse. To be specific, it’s the same old trashmouthed bullying we all know from junior high and high school. Putting it on the net doesn’t cause it to develop any novel complexities or interesting emergent behaviors. It’s just the same old sh*t. (From "Moderation isn't rocket science" by Teresa Nielsen Hayden)
