It's not really a code, they're more like guidelines: Will bloggers accept a code of conduct?

Proposed Blogger Code of ConductThe blogosphere's buzzing over a proposed code of conduct for bloggers that seeks to strike a balance between frank conversation and civility.

This is a collaborative exercise of course in the best spirit of Web 2.0, and bloggers are invited to submit their comments or otherwise to participate in developing this proposed code.

Bloggers have already raised some fair criticisms with the proposed code, including A-listers Jason Kottke and Cory Doctorow, and no doubt others will be weighing in.

In the meantime, we'll just have to wait to see whether the blogging world is ready for its own "No Asshole Rule".
