    I’m generally sympathetic to the mission of MRFF. I just think it’s a stretch to ascribe malicious intent to the AFAA for linking to the site. I can’t generate any outrage over a link to a 3rd party web site. I’m not willing to hold the author of one website (, for instance) for all the content contained on, say, Huffington Post, even though HuffPo contains thousands of articles that may contain noxious opinions. Your link to HuffPo doesn’t make you responsible for Arianna Huffington’s rants.

    Now, if you want to call out AFAA for being lazy in this instance, go ahead. And if you want to chastise them for being slow to respond to a PR gaff, be my guest. If you’d like to rent a billboard for 5 weeks to remind folks that there’s a lot of real crap on the internet, I’ll donate to the cause.

    I just can’t get excited about this one. Sorry.
