Edublogger Etiquette - Healthy Debate

Graham Wegner wrote a tongue-in-cheek post about spelling. Hailing from Australia, Graham finds it funny that "the Wikipedic wisdom of crowds defines the right spelling" for him.

Matthew K. Tabor wrote a post in response to Graham, claiming that "spelling isn't a matter of opinion". In his response, Matthew not only critiques the ideas of Graham but also those of the people that made comments to Graham's post. A somewhat tense discussion ensues in the comments of Matthew's post, on the blogs of some of the comment writers, and also in the Twittersphere.

  • How does one identify the line between a healthy debate and a downright ugly brawl?
  • What are the rules inherent to such discussions?
