Well, it's about motherfucking time.

At long last, a group of upstanding high-minded individuals who totally speak for the decent elements of our society say it's time we took all the fun out of the internet.

I'm not happy about what happened to Kathy Sierra either, but for corn's sake. A "code of conduct"? "Owning your tone"? Excuse me while I go do something interesting instead, and leave these market-driven schmucks to come up with some new rules to live by. No one is more in favor of civility and against pointless hostility than me -- I mean, shit, I write polite letters to all the hate mailers I get -- but I recognize incipient homogenization in the guise of common decency when I see it, especially when it's gussied up in all this marketing talk.

Norbizness has more, should you want it.
