Kathy Sierra and Chris Locke (aka Rageboy) have posted a coordinated statement.
Chris says, among other things:
"Misogyny is real -- and vile. Violence against women is wrong. It must not be tolerated. This issue should be explored and discussed, not swept under the rug, not rationalized away."
Thank you, Chris.
He appears not to acknowledge any responsibility for letting stand the horrifying posts about Kathy and others that, almost certainly, were made by someone with author privileges his blog. (It was a blog with several authors.)
"However, Chris and I (and others) still strongly disagree about whether people who are respected and trusted in our industry (like the three of them) are giving tacit approval when they support (though ownership, authoring, and promoting) sites like meankids and unclebob."
Half a loaf, at any rate. And kudos to both of them for switching to talking (in person and on the phone), not flaming.
