I agree with Brian. I don’t understand why online publishing should have different ethical standards than print or boardcast; namely, an obligation to tell readers about any potential conflicts of interest. I’m constantly amused by all the folks who write/publish online, but insist that it’s somehow different than all other forms of publishing, just because “anybody can (and does) do it.”
