    Philip, I've now thought about this quite a lot and have concluded that it was right to link to Jackie's post, but a mistake to republish the photo.

    I've followed this story, having seen it on your site, and I have to agree with your post. I think the blogosphere is going through an important phase at the moment in terms of ethics and (lack of) professional standards. I'm one of those people with a foot in both camps: I'm a professional journalist and, in my spare time, a blogger, and as much as I love the freedom that blogging brings, I do try and apply some of my journalist training/ethics to what I post. And sometimes I wish others would do the same!
