Re: Aikiweb as a "Big Tent"

I have been a member of Rotary International, rely on what Rotary calls the "4 Way Test" and I've found it to be a great guide to fruitful communication.

Is it the truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Whether one subscribes to the tenets of any social or fraternal order, the 4 Way Test has helped me communicate respectfully with others - even though I may sometimes fall short.
