Jim, I like the pithy statement. But what I like better are the 25 Rules of Considerate Conduct in the book Choosing Civility by P.M. Forni. Check out The Civility Initiative.

Surprising to me I find myself on the "we don't need no stinking badges" side w.r.t. O'Reilly's code.

Jim -

Maybe I surround myself with civil, reasonable people who quietly remove crap from their blogs without making a big fuss about it, I don't know.

Ignoring the trolls is not enough if you're running a personal blog. If someone is hijacking your space, you squash them out. If they want to post something, let them get their own server and pay their own hosting fees.

The appeal of being a petty tyrant in your own space is so great (the things you learn from the editors of The Onion, who are beholden to their advertisers, not their readers).
