Creepy stuff.

Don't miss Will Wilkinson's comment, it's about exactly how I feel.

If you're interested in reading it, just look up "in defense of hook up culture" on google, they have it in the cache.

Yeah, weird. If that had somehow made it to an articles page without his approval, hey, by all means, take it down: editors exist to, you know, edit. But policing blogs? Really? Bad call. No justification. I haven't read the thing and don't really plan on it, but come on.

Now having read the original post I'm even more nonplussed. That was worth censoring? Really?

Pretty heavy handed, yup. If this is the new norm, we might as well skip the dancing and winking and straight up bring in the big dog. That's right, I'm talking Kathryn Jean Lopez herself. She can take her ruler to the knuckles of the bad children. Swift Catholic justice!

I almost commented there that in all the weirdness, perhaps the weirdest thing of all was you and Wilkinson's complete agreement. ;-)

what's next, censoring comments?

we all know how this goes...

The upshot seems to be that they've restored the original post. Which is encouraging.
