Here are new proposals (nay, let us say commands) about the soc.motss Rules of Engagement:
When in doubt, flame.
You are a fragile ego in a world of egos. They are out to get you. Your best defense is to attack first.
Hate is a family value when it is your gay and lesbian family.
You may forget why you made them, but never forget your negative judgments.
Be proud of your ability to hold a grudge, it shows character.
If someone offers an olive branch, bite their hand. You hate olives and they should have remembered this.
Pick a side.
You are on the side of Righteousness and Truth. Therefore, everything is permitted.
You are not insensitive; the other person is annoying.
You are right and they are wrong. Since they are wrong, they must be stupid.
