Hat tips, Blog Etiquette and a Wallace
I recently noted another had beaten him to a story and suggested a hat tip was in order. On reflection I think I was wrong and apologize. What we need is another term for a blogger to acknowledge priority, in that they acknowledge another blogger was first, but that at the time of writing their post they were unaware of it. This a concept that is alien to the MSM but one that the good manners of bloggers need.
May I suggest a "Wallace"?
If I note that another blogger has beaten me to a story but I was unaware of it at the time I will give them a Wallace; If I have sourced a story from another blog I will give them a Hat tip.
I commend it to the house, what do you think?
