Blogging and self-censorship

In a discussion with a fellow blogger last night, the subject of ‘not bitching about people on a public blog’ cropped up.

Of course you never now who might read one of these things. Hence it’s probably best not to say too much about the muppet of a co-worker who pissed you off today, moan about the acquaintance who’s seriously getting on your tits or even share your thoughts on the latest blatherings of some idiot on a discussion board or newsgroup.

Now obviously having to avoid such subjects is no problem at all for myself or my fellow blogger – seeing as we are indeed the very personification of sweetness and light. Certainly not the sort of people who might, for example, have the motto "If you haven't got anything nice to say about anyone...........come and sit next to me".

It must however, be quite a restriction for anyone who finds such subject manner a rich comedy furrow that never tires of being ploughed.

They must find it very difficult indeed…
