re: #507 Obdicut

Hell, if it takes something as simple as counting to ten, or looking at a picture of an adorable puppy or something, do it. That’s what I do (not the puppy bit) and it’s stopped many a stupid post. Not all of them, of course, and sometimes I break my own rules, but it’s good to not just immediately start typing a reply. Give it a few heartbeats, and remember that more people than just the one you’re writing to can read your words.

/end sanctimonious mode.

Usually to calm myself down I just stare at the printout of this picture that I have hanging on my cubicle wall. Works like a charm.
