Banned from Boing Boing while the Bombs Are Falling

Leave a couple of comments suggesting that people ought to be able to shoot back at terrorists who are trying to kill them, or that Palestinians, far from starving to death en masse actually live better than their neighbors — and the nice, creative science nerds at the blog of interesting things will ban you.

I should have stuck to leaving comments only on funny cat pictures and Cthulhu-themed posts. Oh well. Their loss.

Also over at The Propagandist, my Israeli friend Jonathan Danilowitz has a first-hand account of what it’s like to live in Tel Aviv, a modern city being targeted by psychopaths armed with heavy weapons.
