Paul Stamatiou has some words for the wise. I certainly try to do my bit before I post on something. But it cannot apply to all bloggers or for that matter on all subjects. The most digging one should do when one is accusing someone of something, whether through blogging or not. But otherwise, blogging can be spontaneous. Sometimes one might come across a floating news but not have resources to double check. The right thing to do would be to acknowledge that it is unconfirmed and proceed if one wants to still write about it. And I also do not think that A-listers should have any special rules. They are like celebrities who can become responsible social icons, but cannot be forced to behave like one. So take it with a grain of salt.
