But at the same time...
be open to other opinions. don't take the Ultra-Homeristic approach that other boards take.
you say something that goes against the Rosey-Red, Ultra-Happy Boswell-ish Homer status quo, and they act like you kicked their dog.
don't be afraid to criticize that which needs to be criticized.
but don't go spreading gloom-and-doom all over our new forums either.
