Blogging Commandments

British church leaders are becoming so concerned about the temptations of the blogosphere that they have drawn up a list of “Ten Blogging Commandments.”

Based on the original 10 Commandments, the new cyberspace rules were delivered in a very different setting. Instead of by Moses on the top of Mount Sinai, the list was drawn up by the Evangelical Alliance during a Godsblog conference in London. The Evangelical Alliance was formed in 1846 and represents thousands of different churches across Britain. Christian bloggers are being asked to sign up to revamped rules – which are etched in “virtual stone.” Full Article And the commandments:

  1. You shall not put your blog before your integrity.
  2. You shall not make an idol of your blog.
  3. You shall not misuse your screen name by using your anonymity to sin.
  4. Remember the Sabbath day by taking one day off a week from your blog.
  5. Honour your fellow-bloggers above yourselves and do not give undue significance to their mistakes.
  6. You shall not murder someone else’s honour, reputation or feelings.
  7. You shall not use the web to commit or permit adultery in your mind.
  8. You shall not steal another person’s content.
  9. You shall not give false testimony against your fellow-blogger.
  10. You shall not covet your neighbour’s blog ranking.  Be content with your own content.
