And remember, your mommy taught you to share.

But I suggest that when you can use a term that won't offend your readers, you should choose it.
-Writing for the Web 3.0, Kilian

I feel like I'm in kindergarten. Share, play fair, don't hit people, don't take things that don't belong to you -All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten. Goodness. The "Biased terms" section of the book was common sense to me ... again. When posting anything on the internet, it is a splendid and necessary idea to be careful not to offend anyone. As an author posting to millions of other people, you never know who will access your writing.

I was taught many of the tips in this chapter not because I had writing for the internet in mind but because I'm a human being that went through twelve years of schooling. I know not to trust spell checkers entirely, how to capitalize, to read my writing out loud as a proofreading technique. Thanks for your input, Kilian, but my mom and my third grade teacher got to me first.

Enough frustration with Kilian for one blog. Go see what others had to say.
