Writing replies and comments

  • Reply when comments start appearing. Stay engaged.
  • No astroturfing.
  • Be generous with details about the question and background. Our goal is to preserve these conversations.
  • Don’t address other users by their usernames (“hi, foo123”). Answer straightforwardly.
  • Answer objections by first finding something to agree with, even if it’s just the positive intention behind the comment.
