First one must  browse the posts on the right hand side of the page. The next step is determining whether or not you recognize the author as friend or foe. Once this becomes clear in your own mind a decision much be made as to whether or not clicking the link will produce quality conversation or whether it will only serve to derail, same.

It get's complicated below the spaghetti thingie.

Now let's assume that we have determined that the three previous hurdles have been cleared. Now it falls to each person, on their honor as to the next action that is taken. There are still options available it falls on each of us to determine the correct path to move forward.

Just one example:

We know the username and we know we sometimes agree on issues yet we really disagree on the points made.What should we do?

a) Attack the diarist
b) Make a reasoned argument as to why we disagree

Second example:

a)Our "friends" know the username and never agree on the issues and we attempt to defend them no matter the content.
b)Make a reasoned argument as to why we disagree.

Third example:

a)No matter the argument deflect and deceive and attempt to convince others that only we hold the truth while flinging insults.
b)Make a reasoned argument as to why we disagree.

Fourth example:

a)Go to "the hiddens" find a name and pile on.
b)Make a reasoned argument as to why we disagree.

Fifth example:

a)Make accusations against others without supporting facts/links
b)Make a reasoned argument as to why we disagree.

If any of your answers were, a), you are being a dick and should be considered as such.

At least that is my understanding.

Maybe they will add this to the FAQ!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
