Brazil: Let us be courteous in the blogosphere

Pedro Dória [pt] is aghast with the increasingly aggressive comments in his blog and with no time to moderate them, he proposes the readers help him keeping courteous. “We're not barbarians, we are civilized. This is a democracy. Everyone is welcome no matter their creed, colour, belief, age, sex. In a democracy, those who we don't agree with have full right to express their ideas. We can disagree, we can even strongly disagree, but we can never make assumptions about their character.”
