Yep --> "It’s one thing for a blogger to field the occasional negative comment about her beliefs, parenting methods, or political stance, but what about when she becomes the target of relentless group of anti-fans? It happens more than you’d think."

Another excellent post by +Geoff Livingston: "A tainted reputation means you have history. You can’t run from history. You can only openly acknowledge it, make your amends, and live with the outcomes."
 
My final post on civility, more of a reflection about how you continue with a bit of a reputation issue as a result of harshness online. How do you handle  the impact of your past errors?

And guess what folks? We're just $1500 away from the Punish Geoff goal of $5k for the +Civili Nation Academy. Make me go to work in drag!
This blog post is running in support of my Punish Geoff Fundraiser: Civilination! Please consider a donation to support better online conversations. At the

Check out +Geoff Livingston's very personal video about why he's supporting +Civili Nation's fundraising campaign to create the Academy for Online Conflict Management. He'll personally donate $1,000 if he can raise $5,000 or more in the next week....and he's offered a special incentive to motivate people (let's just say we'll get to see a brand new side of Geoff!).
 
I'm fundraising for +Andrea Weckerle's +CiviliNation this week.  Andrea is trying to build an online library to help people engage in more mindful conversations online. You can donate at http://bit.ly/civilgeoff .

This Punish Geoff Fundraiser will feature me going to work for a day in drag if we reach $5k from today until Friday. Anyone who donates $100 or more gets an autographed copy of my new book + and autographed copy of Andrea's Civility in the Digital Age. Additionally, I will match the first $1,000 in donations.

+Andrea Weckerle drops by to discuss civility, and in particular how bystanders help resolve or continue incidents online. She uses the recent Abercrombie + size as a case study.  Check it out.  And what kind of a bystander are you?

I'm extremely excited to announce my book "Civility in the Digital Age: How Companies and People Can Triumph over Haters, Trolls, Bullies and Other Jerks." It's an important read for both individuals and corporations because it will teach them how to manage online conflict more effectively and also help them protect their reputations and businesses!

Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales wrote the foreword and +Kami Huyse, who sits on CiviliNation's Board, served as technical editor. 

Buy it and let us know what you think! http://www.civilination.org/civility-in-the-digital-age All proceeds go directly to CiviliNation.
