A Code of Ethics for Bloggers – What About Web Users??

The Guardian, a British newspaper and news site, published the results of a survey of web users in Britain about a code of ethics for bloggers. I have absolutely no problem with signig such a code of ethics and, of course, adhering to it as long as there is a reciprocal code of ethics that I can post on this site that everyone who visits here has to agree to prior to registering or using my contact form.

I certainly agree that there are many bloggers who violate one or more of the ethical prinicples that are suggested in the survey. But, for every unethical blogger, there must be at least ten unethical users. No one, until just now, has ever suggested a code of ethics for web users. Perhaps it’s time. What do you think?
