No bloggers have signed up to join the Online Media Standards Authority. This isn't really surprising. For a start, membership costs $500 a year (and ten times that if too many people complain) - well beyond the means of most bloggers. Secondly, there's absolutely no benefits in doing so. Belonging to OMSA simply exposes you to a complaints mechanism, which can and will be used by the sewer to silence people (and to stick them with the bill for full membership). Why would anyone sign up to that?
