John Odum, from Green Mountain Daily has decided to give up blogging. The Second Vermont Republic didn't care for the fact that he brought some accusations about them to light and decided (instead of responding by refuting the accusations) to go after him on a personal level. They issued a press release not only mentioning where he worked, but referencing his boss by name and implying that the organization (a non-profit agency) might be supplementing the work he does for the blog.
This is beyond acceptable. I have no problem with a heated, even occasionally derogatory and personal, debate, but to instead to go after someone's employer is absolutely reprehensible.
