"I suspect they're going to spend a lot of time managing this system"

Democrats and Republicans alike are encountering a problem with running social networking sites to support their candidates. The lede talks about a group name on Barak Obama's site that I find unprintable, but you get the gist from this paragraph:

The big problem with creating a truly open system is the fact that openness automatically devolves to the lowest common denominator. Open systems attract community, but they also attract nuts. Republicans are constantly plagued with people creating bogus "Klansmen for Whoever" groups and clever login names like "David Duke" and "F**kGeorgeBush". Such is the nature of the beast.
