#10 - "illegal information"...?
Most of these points are common sense, & I agree with just about all of them--except for a small part of #10: "If you have information about a client (be it personal, professional, legal, or illegal) do not, I repeat, do not give that information to anyone else." If a client is doing something illegal & you are aware of it, shouldn't that be reported to the appropriate authorities? Granted if it's something minor (e.g. using a single copy of bootleg software) I could understand not being a tattle-tale, but what if it's something that could cause a major disaster or endanger people's lives? Where would you draw the line in terms of keeping your client's "illegal information" to yourself vs. reporting it to someone?
