Blogger’s Code of Conduct

04/03/2007 —

Net net: as Doc Searls famously said in The Cluetrain Manifesto, the book he co-authored with Chris Locke and David Weinberger, “markets are conversations.” We celebrate the blogosphere because it embraces frank and open conversation in ways that were long missing from mainstream media and marketing-dominated corporate websites. But frankness does not have to mean lack of civility. There’s no reason why we should tolerate conversations online that we wouldn’t tolerate in our living room. Bron: O’Reilly Radar

De ‘Blogger’s Code of Conduct’ zou met de volgende punten gevuld moeten zijn:
1. Take responsibility not just for your own words, but for the comments you allow on your blog.
2. Label your tolerance level for abusive comments.
3. Consider eliminating anonymous comments.
4. Ignore the trolls.
5. Take the conversation offline, and talk directly, or find an intermediary who can do so.
6. If you know someone who is behaving badly, tell them so.
7. Don’t say anything online that you wouldn’t say in person.

Mooi initiatief … maar ben benieuwd of dit de norm wordt…..
Zie bijvoorbeeld de reactie van Vanderleun op O’Reilly’s Radar :

As another long time veteran of the Well, I have to say that I admire your clarion call for a “Code of Conduct.” But when you go out to get one, be sure to pack a lunch and take along plenty of drinking water. You’ll be en route for a long, long time on the way to the magic land of “Ain’t Gonna Happen.”
Still, it is a nice ideal.

What do you think?
