Blogger "Scalping"

I hadn't heard this term before. Neither had Ann Althouse. Right-wing bloggers allegedly

pick a target and harass that person and his or her employer until the person either jumps or is pushed out of the public eye.

Marcotte is the alleged victim in this case. But isn't the left just as guilty in hounding campaigns? Or are they too disorganized? Personally, I'm all for making life difficult for bloggers who have whored themselves out as paid propagandists for campaigns. But it's always best just to expose ugliness and dishonesty, not punish it.
