Blog ethics

Elana Centor wrote about the ethics of blogging today as a result of the recent blogher conference and pointed to Rebecca Blood's Weblog Ethics.

For a moment, I was feeling good about myself for being almost a week ahead of things with my posting about Facilitated Systems's Core Values, and then I realized that didn't address my blogging values. I, too, essentially follow the precepts Flood Blood set forth, and, to the best of my knowledge, I've only violated them by fixing spelling errors or deleting erroneous hard line breaks in my text after posting it—and those only within the first few minutes after I had published my blog. If I get feedback that people would appreciate me being more transparent about even that (and the few that saw those pre-changed blog entries would have had to have been quite quick in checking my blog updates), I'll be glad to use Flood's strike-out suggestion.

As time goes on, I'll be on the lookout for any ethical statements I find better and keep anyone who reads this informed.

Having received my first bit of comment spam today (a blatant advertisement of the sort you might see in an email and totally unrelated to the business of Making Sense with Facilitated Systems), I've decided I may choose to delete obviously off-topic and irrelevant postings. I don't intend to delete on-topic postings that I might simply disagree with, so I do still welcome your comments.
