What Should Blog Services Do About Hate Speech?

Richard Silverstein had a commenter leave some hate speech on his blog and he's writing about what happened when he tried to get his blog provider to remove it.

Don't visit these links if you aren't ready to see some profanity and/or hate speech cause he reprints the actual post that was left in his comments. Today he asks Hate Speech: Is there ever a limit for blog services?

That's a really tough one for me. Here on my personal blog I don't mind leaving up such speech but I will make sure any such speech is replied to with a personal reply from me. I'm a believer in not hiding that kind of stuff.

But, I haven't really been tested yet on that belief. As to Microsoft's sites? I'd pull it down as soon as I saw it.

Why the different standard? Well, this is my personal blog. I can take more risks here. If something goes wrong, the only one this should hurt is myself. Over on a Microsoft property, though, there's a team involved, at minimum, and anything that happens there affects all of Microsoft's employees.

How would you handle it?
