Talk:Bill of Responsibilities

I'm finding that there's a lot of word generation out there on the Internet, but not a lot of word comprehension. It seems like firehosing and gish galloping have become widespread in political debates. I've been toying with a few ideas to express this in a single, pithy way, and I'd like to get some thoughts:
- Friends don't give friends reading assignments
- This seems appropriate for social networking sites, and less appropriate for other venues where there's not an assumption that the participants are Friends(tm).
- No homework
- Don't send someone a link and expect them to read it, unless *they* trust the website. Once again, more appropriate for a social networking site geared more toward unproductive fun than productivity
- This forum is not your blog
- If you say something controversial, summarize it in 500 characters or less
- Reading is more helpful than typing
- This is a riff off of "Listening is better than speaking"
- The lord gave you two ears, and one mouth for a reason

Everything before May 2020 above was originally posted at electowiki:User_talk:RobLa/BResp by me. I'm going to edit the comments above to make that slightly clearer, and possibly remove a thing or two. For example, over on electowiki:User_talk:RobLa/BResp back in March, I had a "Electowiki Code of Conduct" section, noting: "We should use this framework to develop a proper Code of Conduct for this wiki.". Well, that still holds true, so I'm leaving that comment over there (and deleting it from this page). -- RobLa (talk) 20:42, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
I had an online experience which made me understand a very subtle form of bullying. Is there a pithy way of describing online bullying where the person uses their online popularity to get away with "winning" a debate against someone less popular? -- RobLa (talk) 01:36, 30 October 2020 (UTC)
