Do We Need a Code of Conduct?

Apr 10, 2007 in Writing

Tom O’Reilly has begun drafting a Bloggers Code of Conduct. I’m hesitant to think that this is a good idea, even though I agree with some of the points in it. We don’t allow anonymous comments here, but it’s more to do with spam prevention than wanting to force people to stand up for themselves.

And badges? Who designed these? What do we gain by badging ourselves in this way?
