    I personally like Thumper's reminder... 'If you can't say something nice... don't say nothing at all'


    How about you?

    What you said. It's so easy to say something that needs to be said in a way that doesn't make someone else feel like crap afterwards if you just use a little effort.

    My Dad's was "Just because someone else is a Jerk, doesn't mean you have to be one too".

    I don't expect to see it printed on coffee mugs and stationary any time soon, but I still try to live by it.

    I think at the base of it all, Bill & Ted got it right -
    Be excellent to each other​

    My Golden Rule is:

    Never say anything on BYC that you wouldn't say to your mom.
