And one more thing

Marianne Richmond at BlogHer adds an important observations I forgot to include in yesterday’s magnum opus on the dopey idea of a bloggers’ code of conduct: There is not one blogosphere. It is a mistake to allow blogs to be talked about as a monolith for then we allow ourselves to be judged by our worst. The New York Times is not judged in the same field with the National Enquirer. It is even more absurd to judge all 70 million blogs as if they were one. It only tries to turn us back into a mass when what blogs reallly do is let us speak finally as individuals.
