code of conduct for blogging
Some of you have followed the fuss about bullying in blogs in the aftermass of the death threats to Kathy Sierra from the meankids blog (now shut down). Tim O’Reilly has suggested a Blogger’s Code of Conduct, which is pretty over the top, really. I mean, actually a lot of the content is common sense, but it can’t be applied universally as O’Reilly calls for. Fortunately, the blogosphere seems to agree that it’s a silly idea, as Kristine Lowe’s roundup of posts about this shows.
