Is feminism a danger to free speech? (Alternative title: Have I really been that rude and scary?)

Read the links in order and then please tell me if I have been that rude or scary.  I really want to know your opinion.

Her email to me:

Dear Claire -
While I am flattered at the interest you seem to have taken in me, I'd appreciate it if you'd stop spamming my blog with comments and continually sending me unsolicited tweets.

As explained, I'm an advocate of the freedom of speech and believe everyone has the right to have their say. I am therefore loath to implement comment moderation or block ISPs from my site. However, if this spamming continues, I'm afraid I'll have no choice.

Kind regards.
NC

Dear NC
I always love it when people comment on my blogs, so I thought you would be pleased! Why don't you just unblock me and moderate my comments again if your friends are getting upset?    


Huh.  A few days ago she tweeted that she was feeling "combative".  I should also have asked her if tweets had to be "solicited".  

Exchange of tweets between her and her friends that led to NuttyCow saying she was feeling "combative":

@AWOT_UK "No subject will ever be taboo." Are you sure? Do you really mean it?

.@1party4all if you have a well reasoned and supported argument then yes - but I will not publish trolling disguised as free will.

@1party4all Your repeated attacks on 1 individual are the opposite of what AWOT is about. Besides, your argument has no foundation.

Not at all BUT ultimately I find twitter is just a real life continuation of pseuds corner from Private Eye magazine, if any of the people that tweeted ever had to come face to facewith who they really are, much wailing and gnashing of teeth ( along with complete denial ) would ensue.
