Just came across this on another website. Thought it might be helpful!
1-Think the message through carefully before you post it.
2-Choose your subject heading carefully.
3-Ten times as many people will read your subject line as will read your message.
4-Accept that no matter what you say, someone can find a way to turn your own
5-Accept that other people have the right of free speech.
6-Do not repost the same argument you made in a previous post. Posting a point once is stronger than using two posts to make one point. As long as your original post still exists, anyone can read it and accept it as if it were a response to your critic.
7-Do not feel obligated to respond to any post. Of course, when someone asks if you meant "Howard Schwartz" when you said "Howard Grossman" and the answer is affirmative, a response is appropriate.
8-Let the other person have the last word in a disagreement. Making the final post in an argumentative thread is perceived as weakness, not a strength.
9-Assume that any comment overly critical of you will not be believed, and will soon be offset by a response from someone who thinks you are being treated unfairly.
10-Use humor, but use it sparingly. A little humor sharpens an argument, but too much humor comes across as meanness.
11-It is easy for one person to post multiple messages, attaching a different name to each. Therefore, multiple anonymous attacks might all be posted by just one person. The more outrageous the attacks, the more likely that they were all posted by one person.
12-If you are asking a question or requesting information, use a question mark in the subject line.
