About me

Archbishop complains. Nobody suprised.

Dr Rowan has a problem with web-based media:

THE Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, has criticised the new web-based media for “paranoid fantasy, self-indulgent nonsense and dangerous bigotry”. He described the atmosphere on the world wide web as a free-for-all that was “close to that of unpoliced conversation”.

My question: What’s wrong with ‘unpoliced conversation’? Surely it’s something worth fighting for and viciously defending, not something to try and avoid?
