Decent human beings treat one another with politeness and civility, even when they disagree. They do not stoop to ad hominem attacks. They do not use insults. They do not spread false tales. They do not tell lies.
Be a decent human being. Malicious behavior will eventually catch up with you. Nothing is ever truly anonymous. Nothing is ever truly secret. Take the time to ensure something is true before spreading it around. Better yet, don't stoop to the level of gossip. If someone behaves in a way that requires correction, take the time to contact them privately and try to work things out. Don't go to your friends and tell them rumors and send them out to spread them. Rather, be respectful. Be civil. Be a decent human being.
At the end of the day, the person who suffers, or benefits, most from your own behavior... is you.
