Re: Request for Civil and Respectful Conduct

I consider Aikiweb a place for me to work on improving myself, just like the dojo. So I work on my thinking and writing skills. How can I convey factual information consisely? How can I convey personal opinion while being respectful of others? If I do feel it is time for criticism, what words and tone make it most likely to be read without generating a knee-jerk reaction? And sometimes, if I make a conscious decision it is time for sarcasm or righteous anger, am I in control of my emotions enough to be in control of the words and nuances I choose?
