When good blogs go bad

I have been participating in a rather heated debate over copyright issues(specifically Creative Commons Licensing) and how it pertains to web markup and styling over at unraveled.com. While this debate has been very lively and several excellent issues have been brought up by some people, other completely unrelated topics have surfaced because of Joshua Kaufman’s blog posting.

A serious issue with identity theft has surfaced in this series of comments; a poster identified himself as Zeldman, and posted a link to the zeldman.com website. This post was obviously not the real Jeffrey Zeldman, and it illustrates an obvious problem when allowing people to freely comment on web postings and articles. This point is mentioned by Zeldman today in his Daily Report.

I am not sure of the solution to either of these subject matters, but they are both interesting topics and I encourage you to follow them.
