How Would You Feel If Your Boss Banned Personal Blogging?

What would you do if your employer pulled you aside and said a new policy was going to be put in place that would ban you from having a personal blog? According to The Raw Feed, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) staff were recently advised to quit blogging about their lives if their blog “clearly associates them with CBC/Radio-Canada." Now any CBC employee that wants to have his or her own blog must get their supervisor's permission, as they are not allowed to identify themselves as a CBC employee, talk about their jobs or express political opinions. Of course, employees are not allowed to blog during work hours and use the company's bandwidth. These blogging rules have caused a lot of uproar to say the least (I couldn't even imagine), so I'm wondering what do you think about them? Do you think every employee has the right to identify themselves and their profession and employer online if they want to?
