9.9: Avoiding Drama

January 2, 2013

Drama on the web is a fact of life. It’s one of the reasons I disable comments here. My friend Preston posted four tips to help us netizens avoid online drama on his blog.

My favorite, which is something I try to practice religiously:

4. If you make a claim, be prepared to back it up, or be prepared to be called out for it. Knowledge is not to be trifled with, nor are facts. You’re entitled to your own opinion, you’re not entitled to your own facts.

Read the whole list and take it to heart. Be a good netizen.
