"No transgression of sensitivities is so trivial that it will not invite a moralizing rebuke on social media."
You'll have to read the TechDirt article to get the gist of this story, but what it comes down to is that Dave Karpf used the name of Bret Stephens in a tweet about the New York Times, and Mr. Stephens took such umbrage at the louche use of his name in a tweet nobody else noticed (Mr. Karpf probably has more followers than I do, but not many more, I'm guessing) that he sent angry e-mails to Mr. Karpf and the provost of the college he teaches for.
This line from Bret Stephens's latest "cancel culture is canceling everything" missive... I dunno, it just kind of bugs me. pic.twitter.com/aDXtobCUAU— dave karpf (@davekarpf) February 23, 2021
