This is one module of the
Blogger's Code of Conduct

We won't say anything online that we wouldn't say in person. Edit

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.

Unless in real life you would face physical intimidation, whereas online you could avoid it. There is a basic understanding for freedom as well -- your right to swing your fist ends where someone else's nose begins. We must be as responsible and civil we are in the real world. And for criminals in virtual world, well that's a real law enforcement issue. But as civilised citizens we should follow some rules.

Responsibility for our own wordsNothing we wouldn't say in personConnect privately firstTake action against attacks – a) No anonymous comments OR b) No pseudonymous commentsIgnore the trolls
