Well I just think they should deal with those things on a per incident basis. You can't make a code of conduct for the whole "blogging community" and assume that's going to end any kind of threat or whatever. The human race can't even follow a code of conduct, let alone a bunch of people on the internet.

Ahh...yes...and even people without blogs are still jerks.  Sorry, when I read it, I got concerned in the topic of cyber bullying and forgot about the code of conduct call, which was the main topic.  x.x  Oops.

"Code of Conduct"? How in the world does that apply to an vague idea or activity like blogging? That's like saying we need a code of conduct for dog walking or furniture shopping. I mean, sure you probably shouldn't use flamethrowers in either, but what's acceptable to some (say, bargaining over price) is insulting to others. Bottom line is, you can't have a code of conduct unless your a member of something. If you want to start a "League of Informed Bloggers" or some such, then yeah, write your code. I'm pretty sure the people posting death threats aren't likely to follow it or join though.

Yeah... I don't see such a conduct ever coming to reality.

Actually, I wish there was some kind of site that filtered membership of blogs.  Kind of like Technorati, but actually fussy about who they let in.  Only quality content and then you could search those decent blogs and find something that wasn't emo.

Gywn: I think that's Fez. :P  He lives with a giant rat.  But the usual response, at least here, is to commit suicide OR go apeshit crazy and kill the bully.  With a boxcutter.  ^-^  We could merge the tag thread with this one.  *chases after Gwyn*  :P

Xepher's current process for websites seems to meet this criterion...

Xepher's filtering mostly webcomics, not so much blogs.

True, I don't do blogs right now, not as a focus anyway. Many people here have blogs in addition to other content though. I do have plans for the future though, but don't count on anything, it's a long way off.
