OK, so I couldn’t resist the temptation to visit the self-appointed hall monitors of Fluffy’s Internet’s wiki to see just what the wankers have come up with to make Teh Intarwebs a kinder, gentler place. Yes, yes, I know, I’m just giving them attention, yadda yadda, but the opportunities for mockery are just endless here, so how could I resist? Besides, making fun of Idiotarians is what I do. Check the banner at the top of this page. I didn’t just randomly choose that title, you know. So sue me. Please.

So what, exactly, does their Code of Conduct look like at this time? I’m glad you asked:

We celebrate the blogosphere because it embraces frank and open conversation. But frankness does not have to mean lack of civility.

“We’re all in favor of frank and open conversation. Except when we’re not (list of exceptions sure to follow).”

We present this Blogger Code of Conduct in hopes that it helps create a culture that encourages both personal expression and constructive conversation. One can disagree without being disagreeable.

But where would the fun be in that? And as far as your attempt at sloganeering at the end goes, it’s a perfect example of the vapidness that I’ve come to expect from net nannies trying to say something that will make them feel good about what they’re saying without actually saying anything at all. What if I find the mere fact that you disagree disagreeable?

1. We take responsibility for our own words and reserve the right to restrict comments on our blog that do not conform to basic civility standards.

“We graciously agree to accept responsibility for what we personally write, something that nobody in all of history has ever done before. But hey, what can we say? We’re awesomely innovative and groundbreaking. We also reserve the right to delete your comments if we don’t like them, something that also hasn’t been tried before. Evah!”

We are committed to the “Civility Enforced” standard: we strive to post high quality, acceptable content, and we will delete unacceptable comments.

Keep striving, then, because so far you’re failing miserably. But I’m glad to see that somebody is finally asserting a site admin’s right to delete anything that he wants to purge from his own private property. Next, you’ll breathlessly announce that you reserve the right to wash graffiti off of your houses as well. How utterly revolutionary of you, how innovative, how truly unprecedented your wisdom and understanding of something that the rest of us have known since the first clanking BBS monstrosities made their appearances back in the Jurassic era.

We define unacceptable comments as anything included or linked to that:

is being used to abuse, harass, stalk, or threaten others

“We promise not to break the law.”

is libelous or knowingly false

“We promise not to break the law.”

infringes upon any copyright, trademark, trade secret or patent of any third party.

“For those of you who missed it, we promise not to break the law.”

violates an obligation of confidentiality

“…an obligation that extends as far as we feel like extending it at any given point in time, because we’re sure not going to define it here.”

violates the privacy of others

“Don’t bother us with questions about just what constitutes a ‘violation of privacy’, because we’d rather not get stuck having to follow our own guidelines. Not that we have any earthly clue what our definitions are in the first place, but it sure sounds good, doesn’t it?”

We define and determine what is “unacceptable content” on a case-by-case basis, and our definitions are not limited to this list. If we delete a comment or link, we will say so and explain why. [We reserve the right to change these standards at any time with no notice.]

“P.S.: Any of the above can be modified at will at any time as we see fit.”

2. We won’t say anything online that we wouldn’t say in person.

In other words, you solemnly vow to be every bit as droll, skull-crushingly boring and inane on your blogs as you are in real life. I hope you’re not trying to promote yourselves here because, if you are, then you’re currently doing about as well as a salesman pushing ice cubes in the Antarctic.

Unless we are trying to protect a confidential source, in which case, we may omit certain private details or otherwise obfuscate the source of the information.

Non sequitur aside (and frankly, I can’t see the logical connection between #2 and this sentence no matter how hard I try), you reserve the right to make shit up without providing evidence of your claims. If you say that it’s true, then that’s all the evidence you need. Does any of you work for the New York Times?

Unless in real life you would face physical intimidation, whereas online you could avoid it.

You won’t say anything online that you wouldn’t say IRL, unless what you want to say might get your ass kicked. Gotcha. That’s so utterly different from anything I’ve seen on the Internet up until now that I’m simply floored, FLOORED by your pioneer spirit here.

3. If tensions escalate, we will connect privately before we respond publicly.

When we encounter conflicts and misrepresentation in the blogosphere, we make every effort to talk privately and directly to the person(s) involved–or find an intermediary who can do so–before we publish any posts or comments about the issue. Bloggers are encouraged to engage in online mediation of unresolved disputes. Mediate.com will provide mediators.

Damn! Somebody finally figured out what email is! I hope you don’t mind too terribly when your undoubtedly kind and understanding “private” emails urging me ever so gently to agree with you get published and Fisked to ribbons three seconds later. Particularly if they’re written by some twat “mediator” whose only qualifications for the job are having negotiated, unsuccessfully and numerous times, for an increase in their allowance from their parents.

4. When we believe someone is unfairly attacking another, we will take considered action.

When someone who is publishing comments or blog postings that are offensive, we’ll tell them so (privately, if possible) and ask them to publicly make amends, unless it is considered that doing so will only inflame or worsen the situation.

You don’t get to “ask” (read: “demand”) anything of me, unless you want a very public ass-ripping the likes of which will make your butts hurt for months, but by all means go ahead. I love making fun of twits who mistakenly think that they’re in a position to make demands. If you want “amends”, you have to first prove to me, conclusively, that I happened to be completely off my rocker at the time of posting AND you have to be polite. Screw up on either of those points and your dreams of finally making it to the front page of the Rott may just come true in a fashion that you’re quite unlikely to enjoy.

If those published comments could be construed as a threat or of an illegal nature, and the perpetrator doesn’t withdraw them and apologize, we will cooperate with local law enforcement regarding those comments and/or postings.

Do I smell a NetKKKop? That’s great. I positively live for making utter fools of those. Loudly, publicly and persistently. If they are a threat or of an illegal nature (and you don’t get to decide that, that’s what the actual law is for), I wish you the best of luck. Heck, I’ll even help you out in any way that I possibly can. But if you’re jerking yourselves off to fantasies of acting as NetKKKops patrolling Fluffy’s Internet for anything that you can “construe” as being illegal in order to waste scarce law enforcement resources by throwing empty threats around, I strongly urge you to reconsider, for your own sakes.

That sort of thing has a tendency to backfire badly and, moreover, you won’t be winning any brownie points with law enforcement either. Believe it or not, but they actually do have better things to do than to investigate whenever somebody called you “poopie-head” online.

Comments or posts that are deemed offensive will result in a request - private, if possible - that the commenter or poster make public amends, if practical. If those published comments could reasonably be viewed as illegal (threat or otherwise), we will report the comments and commenter to police.

Sounds fair enough. I certainly have no sympathy for actual psychos making actual threats, but I also know how human nature works. Inevitably, the formation of such net nanny cliques leads to insecure, attention-craving, self-appointed sheriff’s deputies wasting everybody’s time with frivolous, moronic claims of “harassment” whenever they see something that they disagree with in the slightest.

Oh, and did I mention that reporting illegal actions is an option open to everybody, regardless of whether they’re members of your Civility Club or not? As a matter of fact, it’s generally considered a good idea to let the actual aggrieved party make the complaint rather than a bunch of busybodies with nothing better to do.

5. We do not allow anonymous comments, but will allow pseudonymous ones.

We require commenters to supply a valid email address or OpenID before they can post, though we allow commenters to identify themselves as anonymous, rather than use their real name, which is the difference between pseudonymous and anonymous. We can always trace someone pseudonym.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

OK, that’s it, you’re officially killing me here. Brilliant idea! Because, as we all know, nobody in the entire WebiVerse knows how to set up an email account for free in about five minutes and pick an utterly common alias to register under. Oh no, thanks to your immense, Mad Tracking Skillz you’ll be instantly able to track him or her down, beyond a reasonable doubt, as long as you insist that your commenters leave a valid email addy.

Here’s a hint, you clueless jackasses: The only reason any of us, myself included, insist on an email addy when registering for comments is to keep spam out. I don’t give a good hoot about your email address otherwise, except for when something goes wrong with the software and I need a way to contact you to get you set up so you can access the site. I don’t want your email addresses so I can “verify who you are”, because I already know that it’s useless for that purpose, nor do I want it for anything else. It’s just a way of getting in contact with you in case that I have to, and nothing else.

If I wanted to track you down, I already have your IP addy which, though far from perfect, is a heck of a lot more useful to me than any number of daft Yahoo! or Hotmail addresses. EVERY blogger has that option when it comes to comments. Every time you leave a comment, whether you have to register or not, you leave your IP behind. Yes, I know damn well that those can be spoofed too but, compared to a random freebie email account, they’re still a heck of a lot more useful when it comes to tracking people who really don’t want to be tracked.

Question: Wasn’t the originator of this whole Code of Conduct thing supposed to be savvy about how the Internet works? Sure doesn’t seem like it to me.

6. We ignore the trolls.

We prefer not to respond to nasty comments about us or our blog, as long as they don’t veer into abuse or libel. We believe that feeding the trolls only encourages them — “I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it. (George Bernard Shaw)” Ignoring public attacks is often the best way to contain them.

Finally, something actually useful. Yes, Don’t Feed the Trolls™ (unless you like to have a spot of fun, which they’re always good for). If there is one thing that is truly lethal to trolls, then it’s ignoring them. You see, the whole point of trolling is to garner attention and create mischief and that just doesn’t work if everybody is pretending that you don’t exist. Trust me, I know a thing or two about the noble art.

Of course, a halfway intelligent person might reasonably ask himself why you need to sign up for a Club Membership in Net Nannies Inc. to use this very effective anti-troll weapon, and the answer is: You don’t.

7. We encourage blog hosts to enforce more vigorously their terms of service.

When bloggers engage in such flagrantly abusive behavior as creating impersonating sites to harass other bloggers they should take responsibility for their clients’ behavior.

And I encourage wankers to mind their own fucking business. I’m sure you’d like for hosting companies to be obligated to trawl through every bloody site located on their servers for offensive content, but the fact remains that the courts disagree. They’re too busy trying to keep your sites running to bother doing what you should be doing for yourselves. Besides, they’re not getting paid to do so and, as they say, if you won’t pay somebody to do a job, don’t expect the job to get done.

The only way you can make a hosting company responsible for anything posted on a site serviced by them is if you address a complaint to them and they tell you that your complaint has no merit. Not to mention that if your case did have merit, you ought to be able to secure an injunction, which is something that hosting companies honor.

They do not, however, cater to every whining FuckHeaD personally offended by something posted on a site. Or at least they shouldn’t, unless they completely misunderstood what the First Amendment means. If it’s actionable, they’ll shut the site down as they should. If it’s not, they’ll tell you to go pound sand, and that’s how it should be. If, on the other hand, they have a habit of shutting down service to a site at the request of any shrinking violet Jack, Joe or Jill, I can assure you that they’ll be going out of business shortly.

You twits are a bunch of sanctimonious, masturbatory morons and I can’t wait to make more fun of you in the future.

    Have you seen the comments? It’s a convoluted mess. No one can agree on anything. It’s hilarious. I can’t help but wonder if His Imperial Pontificating Pretentious Emasculated Ego of Effeminate Elitism™ can even manage sort out his own comments policy after all this.

    2. We won’t say anything online that we wouldn’t say in person.

    Well that’s me buggered right there. My dearly departed Grandmother, may she rest in peace, always told me that I was a right foul mouthed and aggressive little fucker when I was wound up. She knew I was a pussycat, really, but did say that other people may not understand that :smile1_ee:

    Being afforded the time to ponder issues a little deeper as I’m typing online gives me the time to wind in my instinctive response when dealing with idiots, that being the verbal equivalent of grabbing them by the ears and biting their noses off. I rather like having the leisure to explain why it is I have hold of someone’s ears and why it is I’m biting their nose off.

    Oh well, if that’s what they really want…..

    Mediate.com will provide mediators.

    Wonderful! If someone gets their lace thongs in a wad they go screaming for the Mediator, who comes dancing in wearing a pink Tutu and waving their Fairy Mediator Wand around, sprinkle some pixie dust and makes everyone get along.

    And I thought I lived a boring life. These people are virtually comatose if they have to come up with this crap to liven their dull existences.

    Who in Hell do these jackoffs think they are? One of the main reasons the blogosphere has become so popular is because it is uncensored. Someone throw the pansy-assed idiots a link to my little corner of the blogspace, I’ll set them straight.

    Of course all this hand wringing and whining that these Libtard’s are doing is a result of their coming to the realization that they are losing the battle of minds (not to mention just plain having lost their minds period) of people that find that there are more open and sensible views to be found out there. Heaven forbid that people should be allowed to speak their own minds and allow anyone to form their own opinions based on their freedom to seek out information from ALL points of view.

    “Free Speech for Me but not for Thee” meme is in full force on the Left. You can air your views as long as it agrees with us and you do it so as not to offend our delicate multi-culti sensibilities.

    They want to stop the flow of free ideas and opinions before they’ve lost the war completely. Which I can’t understand why that would bother them so badly, considering that losing wars is what they do best.

    Oh, let them have their little tea party! This reminds me so much of something I saw my kids do when they were little. The daughter invited some friends over and set up the patio furniture on the deck at the front of the house. I made her some tea, which she put in a china tea pot and she collected a plate of cookies. Her friends arrived all dressed in their finery, and the tea party proceeded in an orderly fashion.

    Not to be outdone, the oldest son decided to have a tea party too. He already had some friends over (including the twins from next door, whom my husband calls Thing One and Thing Two). They came in and got the every day teapot, filled it with rootbeer instead of tea, and grabbed the bag of cookies.

    Later … checking in on the tea parties … girls out front primly nibbling their cookies and sipping their tea. Boys out back sitting on the deck sans furniture … having dispensed with the cups, are passing the teapot around in a circle, pouring directly from spout to mouth and emitting a loud belch before passing it on to the next person. Cookies all gone. Guess which group was having more fun? Guess which group we are!

    Meh… Whatever - I think it’s impossible to have a system of moderation that’s unbiased.

    Slashdot has a really techno-neato one, and I see it abused on a daily basis - pretty much anything you say that’s:

    1) Pro-Israeli
    2) Supportive of the war in Iraq
    3) Pro-free market
    4) Anti Radical Islamic
    5) Pro-American

    gets “impartially” moderated as a “Troll,” while comments like:

    I think Google Earth should highlight the destruction of Irak by US troops

    and:

    I think Google Earth should highlight the violence committed by the Israelis on the Palestinians

    are “impartially” moderated as supremely insightful. I mean, Slashdot is a community based around a specific tech-industry, which, you would think, ought to be, on the average, apolitical. But it’s not.

    Censorship is censorship, and a system that pretends to censor “trolls” and “uncivilized commentary” will be abused to smother dissent. In fact, it is right now!

    One of the Thing twins needed a haircut and took off with the truck, leaving the other one stranded and the movie schedule up in the air. However, I think they may have managed to round up enough vehicles to get everyone to the movie, and they went ahead without haircut twin. He’s going to have some explaining to do when he turns up!

    This is a large group of boys (easily a dozen); most of them we have known since grade school. The twins have been our neighbors since they were 3 (I have some very damning photographs of them from when they went through their “dress-up as super heroes and dinosaurs” phase of life!). These boys are all a fine bunch, and I’m sort of sad they’re graduating and moving on this year … well, I hope they are all graduating!

    maxxdog: The Thing One and Thing Two labels stuck, although we don’t know which one is Thing One and which is Thing Two! They are not identical twins, and they are pretty easy to tell apart, but whichever one shows up first on a given day gets to be Thing One.
