The Whale Oil site has been off-line following a cyber attack and he has received threats against himself and his family on social media.
Cameron Slater’s is the most widely read blog in the country and almost certainly the most inflammatory.
He upsets and enrages people.
His posts can be irrational and he sometimes uses a scatter gun approach which hits the innocent as well as the guilty.
Nothing he writes justifies threats to his life and the safety of his family.
The Facebook post I saw is probably actionable and definitely stupid.
It gives him more publicity and will increase readership which will upset and enrage the people attacking him even more.
