I have a couple different (though my wife would say "too many") hobbies and I am on forums for most of them. It is difficult for me to keep up with the forums, as it were. What I am thinking to do, is before posting something I want feedback on, finding one person to whom I give positive and/or constructive feedback to. Having done that, if my only forum activity is the one post on one other thread and my own post, I'll feel free to be done with the forum to do other things.
Does this seem like a reasonable way to live the Golden Rule?
BTW, Rennie's cutting boards thread was my application of this philosophy for this post itself.
