Communicating in a chat room or on message boards is different from face-to-face
communication. Only the words are seen, not your facial expressions or tone of
voice. Please pay careful attention to how you use your words.
Remember that the words you enter in a burst of passion or indignant anger will
be there for you and everyone else to see, sometimes long after those intense
feelings have passed. That's not meant to discourage spontaneity, but just a
friendly reminder of the long-term existence and effects of what you post.
You may, from time to time, find yourself in disagreement with someone else's
opinion. At times like these, please keep in mind it's safer and more polite to
take issue with the comments rather than the person.
