In a post on Silicon Alley Insider about Gilt Groupe, a website which runs private couture sales for an invite-only clientele, disgraced stock analyst Henry Blodget includes the following disclaimer:

Disclosure: Yes, yes, we know, we're conflicted up the wazoo here. Gilt's chairman Kevin Ryan is our chairman, Alexis Maybank, Mike Bryzek, and co are basically colleagues, etc. Whatever. You want pure objectivity without a hint of favoritism, emotion, or relationship conflict, visit TechCrunch.

He forgot one other disclaimer: Gilt Groupe CEO Alexis Maybank is a certified Silicon Alley fox. But far classier for Blodget to suggest he's swayed by the bonds of collegiality.
