bloggers threatened

There's been several cases of bloggers being threatened by death or injury just because of their views on their blogs.

One person, a female blogger has had some 900 ill-comments on her blog and 300 personal emails delivered to her email inbox all either containing sexual, threatening or racist comments against her for her views. Leading her to rethink if it is really all worth it.

As the BBC reports on behalf of Tim O'Reily that there needs to be a code of conduct enforced in the blogshpere by the bloggers themselves and not through some government or external organization lest they want to lose the freedom of talking freely.

The question that is being raised here, though, is, if you were in her shoes, what would you do?

What is your opinion?
