Another angle would be - what posting guidelines do you use (if any) to make your interactions more harmonious here?

If I'm posting an opinion or a personal experience, I try to make that apparent; It's at least an attempt to keep arguments at a minimum.

If trying to differentiate, I use the term "I". If trying to harmonize, I'll tend to use the term "we". I try to use the word "you" as little as possible. It's sometimes like a figurative pointed finger, and it just makes for bad writing (according to my composition professor).
