I know I haven't posted in a while, but I couldn't agree more with Marco's thoughts about the Curator's Code. My favorite piece:

…that’s how I feel about links in general: the source author creates something worth linking to, and the rest of us can link as we see fit, regardless of how we found it.

The proper place for ethics and codes is in ensuring that a reasonable number of people go to the source instead of just reading your rehash.

I obviously don't spend a lot of time looking for things for you to read, but both his style, and John Gruber's style is what I've tried to follow.
