Call a spade Ms Shovel
Arguing about things that matter can make you very angry. But the moment you lose your cool, your ability to think clearly is diminished. Stay polite and don’t forget your manners. It’s never worth losing your dignity just to score a point.
Address the argument and never attack the person
Playground bullies fight dirty and so do online bullies, who’ll often attack you for who you are, as though some people have less of a right to an opinion. Keep coming back to the argument, even when they attack you. Nine times out of ten you’ll win that way anyway, as people who attack on personal grounds usually do so because their argument is weak.
Keep an eye on logic
