El código de los bloggerros

Suskind, over at the shiny-new blog Drawing the Line, suggests that thees Statement of Principles for the Prenda de integridad en linea, she ees een need of some amending, een order to have sometheeng more how-joo-say "efficacious".

Now, ¡El Gato Negro! need sign no steenking pledges to have Blog-Integrity&trade, but he ees no averse to these concept of a code of conduct for los bloggerros.

So een the rare spirit of trying to add sometheeng positive to thees discussion, he would like to offer for jour perusal A Bloggers' Code of Ethics, from the estimable site

Thees leest, from April of 2003, she refers mostly to the actions of los bloggerros een their role as periodistas ciudadanos, or citizen journalistas.

I weel excerpt only a small part, under the heading "Minimize Harm" we find:

• Show compassion for those who may be affected adversely by Weblog content. Use special sensitivity when dealing with children and inexperienced sources or subjects.
• Be sensitive when seeking or using interviews or photographs of those affected by tragedy or grief.
• Recognize that gathering and reporting information may cause harm or discomfort. Pursuit of information is not a license for arrogance.

Thees seems to make sense, and there ees much more at the leenk to be considered, and many new chances for diversiónes cómicos.

Por ejemplo I leave joo weeth thees leetle gem, under the heading of "Be Accountable":
• Expose unethical practices of other bloggers.



Pursuit of information is not a license for arrogance.


• Recognize that private people have a greater right to control information about themselves than do public officials and others who seek power, influence or attention. Only an overriding public need can justify intrusion into anyone's privacy.

Jeez, louise.


Meanwhile, on the other edge of town, legislation is being proposed in New Jersey that would “out” anyone charged with “bad talk” or defamation.

Anonymity in the Age of Full Disclosure
By Elizabeth Daley, WireTap. Posted June 8, 2006.

Going too far: Two proposed laws want to punish online 'bad-talkers' by revealing their identities to anyone who finds them offensive.

While it may seem that having one's identity revealed may not be that serious, Paul Levy, an attorney who deals with cases of online defamation for the Public Citizen Litigation Group has seen just how serious it can be. Levy is currently representing one person who was identified as having criticized another person in his community. After his identity was fully revealed, he was forced to move out of his hometown.

Lawmakers in New Jersey seem to agree. Two new recent bills -- A1327 and A2623 -- introduced to the state assembly require Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to disclose user information in any claim of defamation. If these bills were to pass, individuals who are accused of online bad-talk in New Jersey would face instant disclosure of their identities to their accusers.

This legislation proposed in New Jersey puts the focus on those who attack, defame, or out an individual. The line that has been repeated so often in the last few weeks is “there is no way to blog anonymously” These laws propose that First Amendment protections as applied to free speech on the internet would not be extended to those who use “bad-speech” in a defamatory way. Yes, you’re reading that correctly. This legislation proposes that trolls themselves be outed. Now that’s a whole new kettle of fish.
Wow... Jersey is an odd state...

might I suggest that joo theenk about blogrrrolling "Drawing the Line"?

Ah, the heck weeth eet, consider eet suggested.

EGN, you crack me up. But I agree with this:

• Expose unethical practices of other bloggers.

Because sometimes, bathing dismissively is just not enough.
Eeps, that last anonymous was me. Steve Simels regrets, etc.
EGN -- will do, after power is restored and I'm off the in-law's ^&^&%&%&$(!! dialup...

Blogger is awful cranky with dialup...
