If you can't...

Blog readers of the world.

I honestly never thought I'd have to say this, but here it goes.

Please all act respectfully towards one another. These blogs are supposed to be fun. Treat others as you would wish to be treated.

We're never going to take away the option to post anonymously. Lots of people in the past have participated in otherwise very difficult discussions which they otherwise wouldnt have, because the Anon function gave them the chance to talk about things.

Please don't abuse it.

I don't think John or I ever expected these blogs to grow into quite such a 'community'. As with any group of people, I certainly don't expect everyone to get along. But if something or someone irritates you, please try to rise above it and ignore, instead of sniping or baiting or being rude.

This post does not require anyone to comment on it. It doesn't need debate, discussion or validation. It just needs everyone to take a moment to think about their actions.

To the tune of "Rawhide"

Trollin', trollin', trollin'
Trollin', trollin', trollin'
Trollin', trollin', trollin'
Trollin', trollin', trollin'

Trollin', trollin', trollin'
Somebody's been trollin'
Talking through their colon
Their brain seems microscopic
On each and every topic;
I'm wishing they'd go away and hide.
The best stuff they are missin',
Good vittles, love, and kissin',
And motorbikes we wish we could ride


Don't be rude, don't be crude,
Don't get mean, or obscene
Be polite, it's all right,
Tell a joke, kiss a bloke,
Play a game, try for fame,
You can stay, if you play

Oh, Sherlock's always lookin'
For somebody's cookin'
And Mycroft keeps on bookin'
John tries to understand 'em
The credit we will hand 'im
That we're all livin' high and wide.
Lestrade is off deducin'
The crime rate he's reducin',
And true love's at the end of his ride.

I was watching an interview with Craig Ferguson (the Scottish-American talk show host) in which he gave a 3-point checkist to self-censorship:

1) Does this need to be said?
2) Does this need to be said by me?
3) Does this need to be said by me *now*?

Handy in life in general, I think, and particularly online! Apparantly it took him 3 marriages to learn though ;-)
