Code of Ethics and Disclosure Policy

Code of Ethics

Ethics are very important to me when it comes to social media. So here is my code of ethics, adapted from SocialText’s, Sample Blogger Code of Ethics.

  1. I will tell the truth.
  2. I will write deliberately and with accuracy.
  3. I will acknowledge and correct mistakes promptly.
  4. I will not delete comments unless they are spam or off-topic.
  5. I will never delete a post.
  6. I will reply to emails and comments when appropriate, and do so promptly.
  7. I will strive for high quality with every post – including basic spell checking.
  8. I will stay on topic.
  9. I will disagree with other opinions respectfully.
  10. I will link to online references and original source materials directly.
  11. I will disclose conflicts of interest.
  12. I will keep private issues and topics private.
