Not so. Tom Moody says he was lamenting the disappearance of ranting in the blogosphere because of the comment sections of blogs. In his words, “In a post you can be a fiery orator but then in the comments you are supposed to make nice and listen to what people are saying.” Facebook likes etc are making people be nicer.  [Tom Moody]
