Be aware of clarity: in a text-based forum, spelling, grammar, syntax, and punctuation matter somewhat. (But don't be aggressively prescriptive.)
No threats, racism, sexism, homophobia, gendered slurs, political grandstanding, sex advertisements, leading or loaded questions; no agendas. We will remove those posts with no warning or discussion and repeat offenders will be banned.
Be appreciative! If someone contributes their expertise, acknowledge them, especially if they're an expert in their subject.
For the sake of collegiality, err on the side of graciously accepting someone's mastery of their subject unless they're demonstrably nutty. If someone's knowledge seems off, please focus on the information and not the person.
No requests for personal information.
Remember that we are all humans. Be nice!
