"That is one of the mistakes a lot of people make believing that uncensored speech is the most free, when in fact, managed civil dialogue is actually the freer speech. Free speech is enhanced by civility," - Tim O'Reilly, a person the blog-clueless NYT deems to be relevant to the blogosphere.

You can choose or not choose to have comments sections; you can already monitor such sections, if you so choose. But the blogosphere is about freedom - not codes of conduct on sites for free exchange of views.
