While the New York Times’ Howard Beck aptly summarizes the nature of Mike D’Antoni’s doghouse (“there is only one thread that links Nate Robinson, Eddy Curry, Darko Milicic, and Jordan Hill : an urgent, insuppressible need to win now, regardless of other priorities….D™Antoni is determined to make the playoffs, even if it means alienating some players and ruining the trade value of others”), our good pal Tim Cook points out the modest public outcry over Robinson’s status has resulted in a form of social networking protest.

I’m pretty sure Andrei Sakharov’s supporters handled his oppression the exact same way.
