I'd like to note that Toshio (abadger1999 on IRC) did in fact not say
this. It was someone else answering them. 

That said, I'd refer to the following from the excellent freenode
catalysts page ( http://freenode.net/catalysts.shtml ): 

Open-minded. It's easy to make assumptions about other people's
motivations. When you decide someone is behaving maliciously, you've
made an assumption about their motivation which may be difficult to
disprove. Try to make your assumptions about other people's motivations
as positive as possible. 

Careful. Everything you say will be interpreted by the users with whom
you interact. Consider how your remarks will be interpreted before you
make them. Make sure the message you convey is the one you intend. 

Courteous. Even under time pressure, courtesy costs little and
impresses people a lot. It's not about whether working with the person
is easy or difficult; it's about setting the right tone.
