Captain's Quarters endorses the Online Integrity coalition:
The Online Integrity Statement of Principles is simple:
# Private persons are entitled to respect for their privacy regardless of their activities online. This includes respect for the non-public nature of their personal contact information, the inviolability of their homes, and the safety of their families. No information which might lead others to invade these spaces should be posted. The separateness of private persons’ professional lives should also be respected as much as is reasonable.
# Public figures are entitled to respect for the non-public nature of their personal, non-professional contact information, and their privacy with regard to their homes and families. No information which might lead others to invade these spaces should be posted.
# Persons seeking anonymity or pseudonymity online should have their wishes in this regard respected as much as is reasonable. Exceptions include cases of criminal, misleading, or intentionally disruptive behavior.
# Violations of these principles should be met with a lack of positive publicity and traffic.
This statement should guide all bloggers and guard the integrity of open forums for discussion. Already the list of endorsers includes bloggers from both the Left and the Right, and the OIC has taken pains to avoid unnecessary partisanship. I encourage everyone to check out the OIC's blogroll for its diversity.Sphere It View blog reactions
