Unwritten rules of online debating

I think it’s time for a tongue-in-cheek rendition of the unwritten rules of online debating. Unfortunately, I suspect we’ve all seen this, and I doubt it will be a shock to anyone.

  1. don’t read
  2. assume you understand
  3. attack character & motives
  4. assume the worst
  5. insult them
  6. if they say A, saying F disproves A
  7. they are enemies, not people with different opinions
  8. ignore fact checks
  9. all online sources are equal

Anything else I should add?
