I want to clarify my general principles of posting on LF...
I don't call people names.
I don't 1-vote links based on political disagreement. If I 1-vote you, I will tell you why in comments. [EXAMPLE
I will not personally attack another user. I may call your argument or assertion idiotic, but I will not call you
I try to keep political rhetoric general rather than specific. [EXAMPLE
: I may say, "The Left wants to weaken the military." I will not say, "budfields
wants to weaken the military."]
I will engage you in an argument seriously if you can do likewise.
I do not dominate LF with political postings.
In the first 6 months of this year, I posted a total of 9 links under 'government' [link].
glitch p-udding, in contrast, posted a total of 267 links, in the same time period, under 'government' [link].
If you descend into name-calling [EXAMPLE
], I will belittle you [EXAMPLE
I do not hold a grudge or take things personally. This is the internet, not real life. If you've called me names, yelled at me, 1-voted me, or attacked me personally, I am ready to begin anew every day.
I am the most self-deprecating user I know. I do not take myself seriously.
I laugh and make jokes about everything
, including politics.
I am not bothered or offended if you put me in your killfile
. I have no one in mine.
