Rules to blog by:
1. More light than heat; More argument than attack.
2. How to fight fair: If you must attack, fine - but attack others' (or my) arguments, not persons, families, or waistlines.
3. Show me the money - back up your statements with reasons and examples, not innuendo and character assassinations.
4. Be respectful, even (especially) of those with whom you disagree.
5. And the golden rule: Treat others as you yourself would want to be treated.
