Garwulf's Corner #56 - Dear Internet

Dear Internet,

We really need to talk.

I often see people posting links to articles and op-ed columns, like mine, for discussion. In and of itself, there's nothing wrong with this – after all, discussion is the desired result for every single installment of this column. What IS wrong is that a certain number of you, when you disagree with what's in it, post a copy of the article from an archive website like archive.is with the express intent of denying page views to the publisher.

And this really needs to come to an end.
