Don’t Pull Posts

Robert Scoble today gives us a refresher course in blogging.

One of the best (and worst) parts of blog writing is that the author can be held accountable for each and every word written. There is no action that draws more attention to those words than pulling a post. Removed or not, they will always be there, thanks to the search engines, RSS readers and the like.

I made this mistake once before (if you click through, please excuse the formatting – it is pre-Wordpress). I hope to never do it again. Remembering mistakes makes one better.

Deleting what one has written shows a lack of confidence in one’s words, thoughts and opinions.  Are there legal implications to deleting posts? Precedence being set that a blog is therefore less credible?
