REINSTATE MONICA LEWINSKY

Some assorted thoughts and principles:

  • Questions are underappreciated. Everyone wants to reward answers, few admire a good question.
  • It’s fine to ask an ‘easy’ or ‘basic’ question, as long as it’s focused, coherent and not a duplicate.
  • Researched answers are better than speculative answers. Cite standards. Cite the source code. Cite papers. Cite historical evidence. Don’t just go by your memory or gut instinct.
  • Beware of experiments. Just because something worked for you once doesn’t mean it will keep working when the environment changes. You must understand how the experiment depends on the experimental conditions before drawing conclusions from the results.
  • The best answer is often the one with the fewest downvotes, not the most upvotes.
