Remember a while back I posted a blog entry about how some attention-seeking people ought to be shunned as punishment? Turns out out least some media sources are trying the idea. AP ignored Paris Hilton (a name I never thought I would use here) for a week to see what would happen. You can read about it here.
I'm a little disappointed it was a non-event in some ways, as she didn't do much that was newsworthy during the blackout. It would have been interesting to see if the ban would have had more impact. Again, I'm not sure if something like this would ever work, as it goes against human nature. But isn't human nature something we're supposed to rise above?
