Curt Schilling recently mentioned on twitter about his daughter accepting a scholarship to play college softball. After this tweet he received all kinds of vulgar comments via twitter, email, text messages…etc. You can read some of the comments and what he had to say about it here.
It’s easy to forget that things you post on the internet can come back and bite you in the ass. It happened to me several years ago in Fargo (which turned out to be a good thing) when I’d post random and radical thoughts on techno.

I have been looking forward to this flick for quite some time now. I’ve seen all the other star trek movies, and they were kind of hit and miss…most of TNG’s attempts were horrible, there never has been a substitute for the original cast. With the reboot in 2009, new actors playing the original characters […]
