Default 3. Address the topic, not the poster.

Address the topic, not the poster. Having your opinion, claim or argument challenged, doubted or dismissed is not attacking you.

Choose language that focuses on the topic, not the other person. This helps avoid personal attacks and otherwise inflammatory behaviour.

This rule may be enforced much more strictly in some threads like threads on religion or politics where posters can have greater difficulty being civil.
