It's my understanding that Russo is more than just a participant in these Meet The Bloggers events. He's an organizer, right? No politician should support a forum where they're only probably going to be treated with respect. Brown and his campaign may not honestly be concerned with the civility of the MTB forum. They may be angry or bitter. But a rational mistrust of MTB is perfectly reasonable based on what I know. And MTB and the NEO blogosphere should be very concerned about that.
