Losing battle

Mis-Nagid has either been hacked, been hit over the head and undergone a monumental personality change or... he's been hacked.
This isn't the first time this has happened in the Jewish blogosphere. I guess some people just can't get used to the fact that the blogosphere gives a platform to voices who are otherwise not heard and/or not always welcome in our community. They can silence a blog here or a blog there and win a battle or two, but their war is already lost. In fact, the attempt to dismantle a subversive blog like Mis-Nagid's -- resorting rather pathetically to dirty tactics -- is precisely proof that such blogs are already having a felt cultural impact. Like it or not, whether the real Mis-Nagid gets back online or not, such voices are here to stay and people who don't like it better learn to deal with it in a more constructive way.
