I think every Internet user needs to print out that flowchart and put it above their computer.

It is just so more ethical when the its done by the USAF, than when it is done by China. /sarcasm

From the BBC:

"China is using an increasing number of paid "internet commentators" in a sophisticated attempt to control public opinion.

These commentators are used by government departments to scour the internet for bad news - and then negate it."

Being a government employee (and an Air Force brat), I have to say that I'm quite impressed by the flow chart. And I agree with Dan that it should be mounted above everyone's computer!

What is most striking, to me, about the flowchart is that it is given as a guideline and not as a set of rules for communication. Every journal article or presentation I create on behalf of the USGS has to go through several levels of review and approval. The bureaucracy is so sluggish that it's almost impossible to get through the review process before submission deadlines - even if you start when the RFP is first issued.

How did we ever blog before the USAF set the rules? ;)
