It is proper Netiquette to attack issues, topics, and subjects. Don't single people out.
Many people use the internet to vent. If it helps a user work out the issues they have by venting online I am all for it. Do what you have to do.
Users attack the people they have an issue with online for various reasons. Attacking public figures is acceptable because they represent the issues. Attacking private people is not because they only represent themselves. Intellectually attacking public figures is the price they pay for their fame and notoriety. It’s acceptable under the law and Netiquette principles.
It is not acceptable to write your neighbors name in a blog post because his dog ate your flowers. However, the truth is an absolute defense. It is acceptable to write about the issue of dogs eating flowers.
Intellectually attacking your neighbor is bad Netiquette for many reasons. Simply put, it’s cyber bullying on a network scale. Even if you do not have any friends, blogging a personal attack on the internet leverages the power of the domain to publish a personal attack.
Attack issues, topics, and subjects because it will effectively communicate our opinions.
