Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I thought it was the dKos one. They're at a different stage of development than here: I personally prefer Booman's Code: "don't be a prick", though I might phrase it slightly differently. Much more appropriate for a site at this stage.

The European Tribune is founded by active contributors to the US progressive blogosphere, aiming to emulate its energy, wealth of information, and community spirit with a focus on European and international issues.

The European Tribune is a forum for thoughtful political dialogue between European countries on their national and European affairs and also with Americans (and Canadians and others!) on world affairs.

In the context of the Bush administration's "War on Terror", official transatlantic dialogue has become bitter and rancorous and we must make sure that citizens on both sides of the ocean have a chance to better understand each other's problems, internal debates and ideas. Information on the domestic politics of both sides of the ocean - and how it is perceived from elsewhere - are a core staple of the European Tribune. Global issues like peak oil, the emergence of China, the future of the European Union, immigration, pollution will be discussed from various perspectives.

Lighter stories, travel experience, personal testimonies and the like are explicitly encouraged

Yes, that's the about statement for this site. I don't see your point?
