The bloggers ten commandments (With response)

The God botherers of the C of E are at it again, telling others what to do.
Ten commandments for bloggers:
1 You shall not put your blog before your integrity
(Bloody cheek! My blog is a symptom of my honesty and integrity, how dare you suggest it isn’t?)
2 You shall not make an idol of your blog
(Unlike churches, temples and altars, eh?)
3 You shall not misuse your screen name by using your anonymity to sin
(Your definition of ‘sin’ being? One mans ‘sin’ being another’s moral rectitude)
4 Remember the Sabbath day by taking one day off a week from your blog
(My blog is a hobby, done on my time off, so push off)
5 Honour your fellow-bloggers above yourselves and do not give undue significance to their mistakes
(If they are wrong, should I not do them the courtesy of correcting their mistakes?)
6 You shall not murder someone else's honour, reputation or feelings
(Unless they really deserve it of course)
7 You shall not use the web to commit or permit adultery in your mind
(And you can keep your pallid hands off the choirboys)
8 You shall not steal another person's content
(‘Fair use’ is covered by copyright and respected by all those with any integrity)
9 You shall not give false testimony against your fellow-blogger
(Fellow blogger? Don’t you realize it’s a cyberdog eat cyberdog world out here?)
10 You shall not covet your neighbour's blog ranking. Be content with your own content
(Take a hike. Rankings reflect readership and content. I’ll be content with my content, but only if I’m content with it.)
