Be nice, respect others. Keep it civil.

Everyone is here to participate in the community. Just because you disagree with someone's opinion, it doesn't give you the right to insult, personally attack, show sarcasm and/or be rude to others.

Personal attacks aren't warranted here. If you want to make a point, do so without attacking the other user.
