Etiquette - social misconduct for blogistes...arise you have nothing to lose but your manners

Blogs are bad, blogs are wicked, blogs are too democratic, blogs are corrupting the democratic process, blogs aren't making all that much difference, really... is Lenin's Tomb contribution to the faux argument of the Guradian columnist's fears and concerns about blogistes and the proposed nonsensical Code of Conduct.

Prompting 2 questions.
