Have you been slain by the Spirit? Then show it and glow it.
- I am never going to use a screen name to hide behind. I will never say anything publicly that I would be ashamed to attach my name and face to.
- I will never send off anything, even private e-mail, in anger.
- I will not rise to the bait of trolls who are trying to provoke emotional online shouting matches.
- I will never forget that anything I put on the Internet will exist until judgment day.
- I am going to take other people’s actions in the kindest possible way and view their words in the kindest possible light.

There is apparently enough server capacity on earth to preserve every word and picture that ever went into cyberspace. Good news for researchers and history nerds. Bad news if you assumed that you have any kind of “personal privacy” once you post or send something. A Lutheran pastor in Wisconsin just lost his job because the screen name, behind which he hid as he crudely and obscenely tried to flame somebody with whom he disagreed, turned out to be porous. He was outed, and then he was out of a job."
