When should blogs publish private

When should blogs publish private e-mails?
I usually ask permission when quoteing email or
icq/jabber/irc but as a courtsy not a rule.

The only time i would definately require permission is if the message, email or icq etc,
was sent encrypted. The rational, anything sent in clear text is already kinda public. If you don’t want something public then encrypt it.
