  •  Partly, that is just what I do (3+ / 0-)

    and what I have always done.

    Go back through my Diaries, it's a fairly constant theme.

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      and lose my temper, but I try my best to be as courteous as possible to everyone.

      •  There is a trick worth remembering (3+ / 0-)

        If you do nice, nice, nice ... there is a consequence.

        When people make mean comments, those comments stand in sharp relief to everyone else who is reading the thread.

        Oftentimes they will jump in to help. Even if they don't, they will remember the one who was trying to remain courteous and address the issues.

        However, when folk go head to head, the other simply walk on by.

        Took me years to learn that, and I regret some of my less temperate internet history.

        no links :p

        I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
