Whether or not I agree, I’m honored to be part of the conversation when you . . .
- Represent the opposition accurately (no straw men)
- Speak with confidence (no defensiveness)
- Address me as a peer (no talking down to the reader)
- Remain calm (no shrill crescendos)
- Treat me with respect (nothing uncharitable)
- Give me something to chew on (no platitudes or generalities)
- Paint your boundaries as broadly as possible (distinctive is preferable to sectarian)
