#18 If, for some deeply irresistible need, you feel the urge to give advice, don't be disappointed if no one takes it.
#19 Do not attempt to psychoanalyze the deep seated emotional physchotic breaks that have occurred in the minds of posters who were rejected by their mothers and still compete for their father's love. Never try anything like that.
#20 Above all don't be thin-skinned and think the whole world is against you. The whole doesn't know you....yet.
#22 When you start to post something accusing somebody of some inconsistent or negative position, if you're not sure they hold to it (you think they might, but aren't sure), ask them. Put the comment in question form vs. assumption form. [Exception: If the poster is an active member of a given body of believers, then some assumptions about standard doctrinal positions can be made...but even then, remember that some are "cafeteria" pick & choose-'em style; others are "inactive"]
#23 Don't hold other posters to a standard you're not willing to apply to yourself. For example, if you accuse others of intolerance, ask yourself first, "How tolerant am I of their religious vantage point?" (If you're intolerant of it, then it doesn't make much sense to accuse others of perceived 'religious intolerance')
Then SOME folks would miss out on my VERY GOOD ADVICE!
But this is EXACTLY what these chat rooms are for!
Other than passing recipes around.
