Should I Be Pleased or Depressed by Baen Books This Afternoon?: Live from the Roasterie

So I followed my son's friend Jennifer Allaway: #Gamergate Trolls Aren't Ethics Crusaders; They're a Hate Group into the wilds of #GamerGate; discovered among other things that in response to the misogyny there is now a Scalzi Gender; and found that Reason continues its downward spiral with some more "harassment has been a two-way street" opinions-of-shape-of-earth-differ journamalism. I then thought I owed it in order to round out my understanding the picture to see what the honchos of science fiction publishing house Baen Books had to say about #GamerGate...

Should I be depressed that Toni Weisskopf and others aren't willing to say that the way the #GamerGate trolls behave toward Zoe Quinn, Anita Sarkeesian, Brianna Wu, and company is shameful and contemptible?

Should I be pleased that they have apparently tried to rob #GamerGate of oxygen by prohibiting any discussion of it from their internet spaces?

Or should I be depressed by noting that they don't think their web membership can even note the existence of the #GamerGate trolls without something going horribly wrong?
