    That said, it doesn't appear that the new guidelines really takes the place of the myriad of random rules that have been written by various people at various times,
    Here is a nice little set written by Hunter .
    I want to make one point especially clear. Do not rate based on which side of an issue someone is on. This is very important. A comment that should be hidden is a comment that should be hidden, regardless of which side of an issue it takes. If you are rating down comments from "the opposing side" of an issue, you had well better rate down similar comments if they come from your side of the issue. If you are giving positive ratings to insults hurled by your own side, thus rewarding obnoxious behavior, you are similarly sabotaging community moderation efforts. This "double standard" has been all too transparent, in candidate diaries: community moderation doesn't work if large portions of the community explicitly refuse to moderate themselves according to the same standards to which they hold others.
