Hi Alex,

For the forthcoming book /Blogging in the Global Society: Cultural, 
Political and Geographical Aspects/, I wrote a chapter that examines a 
2007 attempt to institute a code of conduct among blog moderators. The 
article examines the intense reaction to the proposed code, provides an 
overview of historical means of moderation of online communities, and 
discusses the U.S. tradition of media self-regulation. The book won't be 
released for a couple months, but I can send you a PDF of my chapter, if 
you're interested. (The book's Web page is 
http://www.igi-global.com/book/blogging-global-society/49568I if you 
want to check out the abstract.)
