I'm only asking questions here. Is it odd that an Opponaut is being burned at the stake in a feature article for expressing their views without being rude, vulgar, or otherwise a big jerk?

Darkcode expressed an opinion on our latest Morning Shift without any cursing, name-calling, or leud suggestions. If you haven't read it, the article in question is here on the Front Page. While I don't specifically agree with either side of the argument, I'm concerned over whether Jalopniks' powerful resources are best used when publicly shaming a commenter for expressing a unique viewpoint without being rude, vulgar, or otherwise deserving of the banhammer.

What do you think, Oppo? Was this appropriate? I'm not going to take a concrete side of this issue, but I'd like to know what you guys think.
