== How to avoid abuse of Talk pages ==
Most people take pride in their work and in their point of view. Egos can easily get hurt in editing, but Talk pages are not a place for striking back. They're a good place to ''comfort'' or undo damage to egos, but most of all they're for forging agreements that are best for the articles they're attached to.
===Here are a few things to bear in mind===
* Wikipedia articles are supposed to represent all views (more at [[NPOV]]). The Talk ("discussion") pages are not a place to debate value judgements about which of those views are right or wrong or better. If you want to do that, there are venues such as [[Usenet]], public [[weblog]]s and other [[wiki]]s. Use the Talk pages to discuss the accuracy/inaccuracy, POV bias, or other problems in the article, not as a [[Wikipedia:Wikipedia is not a soapbox|soapbox]] for [[advocacy]].
* If someone disagrees with you, this does not necessarily mean that (1) the person hates you, (2) the person thinks you're stupid, (3) the person is stupid, (4) the person is evil, etc. When people post opinions without practical implications for the article, it's best to just leave them be.
* Wikipedia invites you to [[Wikipedia:Be bold in updating pages|be bold]]. Before initiating discussion, ask yourself: Is this really necessary to discuss? Could I provide a [[Help:Edit summary|summary]] with my edit and wait for others to quibble if they like?
* You can always take a discussion to e-mail or to your user page if it's not essential to the article.
===A few more tips on polite discussion===
* Always make clear what point you are addressing, especially in replies.
** Quoting a post is O.K., but stating how you interpreted it is better. Before proceeding to say that someone is wrong, concede you might have misinterpreted him or her.
**Terms like "racist," "sexist" or even "poorly written" make people defensive. This makes it hard to discuss articles productively.
