I post this here, in the area where Don stuck the "moderating guidelines".

Civility or censorship? O'Reilly proposes blogging code of conduct (http://computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9015951&intsrc=hm_lis)

This topic is old here - we have, and continue to battle with it. However, IMO, we do a pretty good job, thanks largely to forum members using self-imposed decorum.

Surprisingly, O'Reilly's initiative has stirred quite a backlash. I say "surprisingly", because one particular SR forum I frequent mandates members use their real names - they have found this alone forestalls most rude flak.

Anyway, this will surely be of interest here - we are all growing through the same pains...
