Don't Just Downvote, Debate!Submitted by jungIepunker on Mon, 07/15/2013 - 05:32
Don't be afraid to make your opinion known. Participate in the discussion. Be constructive - disregard emotionally charged attacks, and quit being a spectator. Don't let downvotes dissuade you, you may have a perspective no one else has thought of. A million downvotes or comments against your opinion doesn't invalidate it - keep an open mind and look for truth in opposing arguments and learn. Don't be afraid of being wrong: let's all get serious and have it out. Don't mistake passion for vitriol, and remember we share a common overall goal - I'm not saying we should hold hands and sing Kumbaya, but try to be helpful and informative rather than simply trying to "fight" about everything.
