The Perils of Hosting Weblogs.

The Salon/Userland weblog-hosting project brings up some interesting issues — such as, how much latitude do you give the bloggers who decide to use your hosting service in terms of controversial content? Salon’s “amateur bloggers” are paying for the hosting service (free for the first month, then $39.95 a year), so does Salon really want to tell a controversial blogger he/she’s got to go? Why it might be tempted to kick out certain hosted blogs is because it lists all of them; part of the appeal of having a weblog on Salon is the exposure that Salon can bring to it, which makes the hosting worth the money.
