3 tweets by Peter Simeti with much value to consider

Alterna publisher Peter Simeti had some more to say in connection with the terrifying experience he went through recently:

He's absolutely correct. Especially when so-called comics writers engage in offensive behavior, they risk inciting violence of the sort that people like Billy Tucci and Simeti recently encountered. Publishing higher-ups have to start taking more serious measures to ensure their contributors aren't engaging in any kind of reprehensible acts, in front of or behind the camera. Simeti also said:

There's a case to be made that social media platforms like Twitter just aren't worth using, and it'd be better to convey thoughts on a blog instead. Besides, unlike Twitter to date, on a blog you can edit your text to make corrections and addendum. There should be a request made by publishers to just make use of a blog if that's what it takes to communicate and interact with audiences, or even Facebook. A site where you can only write up brief items one after another is ridiculous.

Any sort of harassment is unacceptable, and “SWATting” is despicable and dangerous. That said, I’d like to point out that when conservative voices, or those with whom you otherwise agree, say they’ve been harassed, you sound the alarm. But, Avi, when left-leaning creators have done the same, you express skepticism and demand to see evidence.

Why is that?

Believe me, if a situation like this happened on a left-leaning site, the opposite would be in effect. That's just how sites like this roll.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
