Let's assume we all grew up in furnished homes and know the basics of politeness. Still, written rules sometimes help us to remember.
- Be polite.
We all have questions. We all know something that may not be obvious to everybody. And we all have limited patience. Please, ask in a polite and unoffending manner. Same goes for answering, obviously.
- Be respectful.
Sometimes we're right, sometimes we're not. Sometimes there is no right or wrong. Please, respect other people's opinions and views of the world. Unless they openly offend others. Then it's time to report it (there is a "report" link next to every post and reply) and let us handle the rest.
- Be supportive.
We all need a place to find support. Do your best to help others so they will help you too when you need it. And don't lose your patience too soon.
Postings that ignore those rules will be deleted and the respective owner will be asked to buy us buns - or will have to face more serious consequences.
