Don't Make Assumptions

Unless you know all the facts about a situation, don't make public written assumptions about the situation or problem.  If you do, you make yourself look like a fool, and you will probably end up ticking off the other people involved in the situation.

You can think whatever you like about the situation or the problem.  Its when you move from just thinking to actually writing or hitting your keyboard that you start down a slippery slope.

And if you've already ticked off the other people with your assumption and/or comment, at least make sure you can write, type, spell, and punctuate properly.

Nothing is more irritating to me than people who think they know everything when they can't even spell (or use a spellchecker, or proofread before hitting enter) or punctuate (the comma, semicolon, and period buttons are there on the keyboard for a reason!)
