Purity Trolls

A constant in the life of the liberal blogger is the presence of purity trolls. Today's example is someone bitching that I'm "feeding the beast" that is Comcast by suggesting that people who already subscribe to Comcast, if they wish, take advantage of something free (Mad Men on demand) that Comcast is providing. This is "implorable" (?) because I'm someone "who uses the net as their primary source of income, and to disseminate their message."

Not only that, I use Comcast to disseminate my message! Like most of the country my options for TV and broadband are, you know, limited, which is why I support all kinds of policy changes which would thwart the power of Big Telecom. But until then, I'm a customer too...
