Milo Yiannopoulos: Twitter banning one man won’t undo his poisonous legacy | Technology | The Guardian
To be perfectly honest, I didn't even know who Yiannopoulos was until his recent appearance on Andrew Bolt's show. But reading that he took the "gamers" side on Gamergate (about which I had read enough to have a view), worked for Breitbart, and seemed to primarily be about vacuous self promotion in the "culture war", I soon enough had his measure. (Why is it that Right wing gay men - such as him, Jim Hoft and - I think no one doubts it - Matt Drudge - seem to be amongst the nastiest and dumbest Right wing culture warriors around? I find that odd.)
The linked article is not bad in explaining his poison, although I think she's unduly pessimistic about the benefits of his Twitter banning.
Update: the Vox explainer on the background to his banning is pretty good. Of course, that Bolt would have him on his show just re-confirms my re-categorisation of him - "Gone Completely Stupid and Offensive".
