CREDIT WHERE CREDIT'S DUE: Back on April 26 I suggested that Best of the Web's campaign to shut down racist web groups on Yahoo! and MSN was misguided because "[o]ne benefit of letting bad people speak their mind in public is that the rest of us can learn what's on their mind and figure out whether they're merely obnoxious or actually dangerous." InstaPundit linked, Best of the Web linked InstaPundit, and the rest -- the fame, the wealth, the women -- is history. But it turns out that someone else, Mr. A.C. Douglas, actually made the same point before me, and much more colorfully. Readers should direct any future payments of money or harem additions to Mr. Douglas. That is all.
