On Censorship

BBP hints at some skullduggery in the ED.
I like him, I enjoy his blog, I enjoy working with him; he is good at his job.

I am curious to know what has been afoot. I have been off the floor working with small people again, so can't speculate.

Freedom of speech. I'm a big fan; censorship is a bad thing. It's next to book burning. And yet... there must also be limits. Right? Does freedom of expression extend to someone who wants to come to work andshout obscenities at me? In general, no. I'll have him removed.

If something goes wrong at work, should it be public knowledge. There must be transparancy, but do people need to know everything? If you hide something, no matter how small, is it the first step down a slippery slope?

I think maintaining the moral high-ground is difficult. If I make a mistake, I'll own up to it. That's the way it should be, but I'll bet I could find an exception, one situation in which I could justify, if only to myself, bending the rules.

Ethics. Not just a county somewhere in England...
