Social Morays

I recieved an email from the (former?) Director General of Education and Training NSW this morning, regarding 'Social Media Policy and Guidelines'. It contained the following:
The highest performing education systems in the world use technology for collaboration between peers and have professional development for peers, led by peers.

To get a taste of how we’re doing that, take a look at the professional learning network, Yammer. Scroll through the posts and you’ll see staff sharing teaching practice, resources, research and ideas, solving problems and posing questions...

But an online community, like any community, has its own morays and protocols. With opportunity also comes responsibility and, as public sector employees, we are subject to external scrutiny.
I think he means mores...

Ha...I'd heard the distressing news that our glorious ex-drug pusher (sorry, glorious leader) had been shoved out of office at the DET.

1 point for our new Premier.

I've just thought of a perfect name for a Japanese seafood restaurant:

"O tempura, o morays!"
