Two sorts of frankness in a blog

Via Andrew Gelman: obnoxiousness and openness.
Freedom to offend others and expose one’s own uncertainty/weakness. I agree with Andrew that even though we see feature 1 more often in blogosphere, and feature 2 is important too. I would add that expose one’s own uncertainty voluntarily, even in blogs, takes courage.
