Disclaimers for blogs on our site

Just considering the question of a disclaimer for an official site. Some samples . . .

The student blogs available on this website represent a real and authentic depiction of student life at Wilfrid Laurier University. In an effort to present this authentic depiction, the university maintains minimal editorial control over the communications of its bloggers.
Consistent with this decision to exercise minimal editorial control, the statements or communications of the bloggers on Lauirer’s website do not represent a statement of the university’s official position or policy.

Just for interest:

  1. Discussion on thr Role of an academic and the need/not need for disclaimers when speaking as a citizen.
  2. Peter N Kirstein – Work for Peace! Protect Academic Freedom! Defend Critical Thinking in the Academy! – “Also, this blog does not represent the views of neighbors of SXU who bicycle, jog, walk dogs or themselves on their daily constitution at St Xavier University, in the City of Chicago, in the County of Cook, in the State of Illinois, in the United States of America, on the North American continent, in the Western Hemisphere of the planet Earth.” I wonder if he intended to omit me?

How much do you balance risk with freedom? Need something soon to go on our new economics site.

POSTSCRIPT later in the day . . .
Just discovered a blog on a Canterbury URL: blogs.libr.canterbury.ac.nz/econ.php?blogid=8 I think you have really got to be an economics person to appreciate this, but it’s a start . . .
