This attitude has now seeped into the maritime blogs with a very popular maritime blog continually getting rude replies and putdowns to comments on its posts. Since all are published without clarification it would seem that the blog itself approves of this type of comments but more likely is considerate of "free speech" rights. This is a pity because once the New Administration is in place from January 2017 changes will take place and there will be a change of perspective by the Citizenship of our Nation. A study of the changes now slowly taking place in the European Union may show you what can happen. That change will in turn create a different viewpoint and various blogs will become less followed which in the case of some maritime blogs would be a loss of good posts but rude comments.
