But where do they stand on Marvel vs. DC?

From today's Columbia Journalism Review comes this piece on the blog-war in the Middle East. The Israeli Foreign Ministry wants its supporters to download Megaphone, software that will "alert subscribers to internet polls, 'problematic' articles, and online debates which the Ministry would like Israel supporters to 'talk back' to."

Of course, since the Internets are available to everyone, the Lebanese and their supporters can download the same software and monitor the same data. Flame On!

It's like Rudolph's nose...no matter how much I try to cover it up, it bursts out at the most inconvenient times to embarass me.
