Downfall of Civilization
Blogging, laying waste to the Persian script and language, has been able to drag every serious and intellectual topic into scum of the disease of vulgarity, grow like a cancerous tumor, and trash the writer, the reader and everyone else.
--Seyyed Reza Shokrollahi
This quote comes from at article in the current American Anthropologist, The Vulgar Spirit of Blogging, that deals with the effect of the blogosphere (known as weblogestan) on high culture as it pertained to the debate between Iranian bloggers over Islam's compatibility with democracy.
Of course, it could apply to English language blogs as well.
