Ahh, working on a session for Blog Indiana on blog etiquette, ethics, and policies (Saturday, at 11:00 a.m.) and have been researching best practices. Suddenly, it feels like a lot of "do what I say, don't do what I do." An overeaching theme is community -- I'm very proud of the community we here together have created.
1) No more anonymous comments. You'll need a registration to post a comment here. Comments are the core of our community, so it's only fair that comments and opinions, agreements and disagreements, have a real person attached. Online experts have us all believing that to build heavy traffic, we must allow anyone to post easily -- at the expense of healthy community. I disagree. It's OK to use a coffee name. Your email address is just between you and me. Registration with Blogger or OpenID is free and simple.
