I've left the writing group and all I can think about is definitions:

blog: (n.) Short for Web log, a blog is a web page that serves as a publicly accessible personal journal for an individual. Typically updated daily, blogs often reflect the personality of the author.

confidentiality: the nonoccurrence of the unauthorized disclosure of information.

censorship: Censorship is the systematic use of group power to broadly control freedom of speech. (Freedom of speech : the right to freely say what one pleases, as well as the related right to hear what others have stated.

Sanitization and whitewashing: [Both words] are almost interchangeable terms that refer to particular acts or campaigns of censorship or omission which seek to "clean up" the portrayal of particular issues and facts which are already known, but which may conflict with a presented point of view.
