'''Do not make personal attacks anywhere in Wikipedia.''' Comment on content, not on the contributor. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Nobody likes abuse.
Many Wikipedians [[Wikipedia:remove personal attacks|remove personal attacks]] on sight, and although this isn't policy it's often seen as an appropriate reaction to extreme personal abuse. Users have been [[Wikipedia:Banning policy|banned]] for repeatedly engaging in personal attacks. Abusive edit summaries are particularly ill-regarded.
Remember that disputes on talk pages are accessible to everyone on the Internet. The way in which you conduct yourself on Wikipedia reflects on Wikipedia and on you. [[Wikipedia:Staying cool when the editing gets hot|Stay cool]].
Different contributors may not agree on an article. Members of opposing communities reasonably wish to express their views. Synthesising these views into a single article creates a better, more [[NPOV]] article for everyone. Remember to accept that '''we are all part of the same community''' as we are all [[Wikipedia:Wikipedians|Wikipedians]].
==So, don't do it!==
<font size="+2">'''There is no excuse for personal attacks on other contributors. Do not make them.'''</font>
Specific examples of personal attack include but are not limited to:
* Negative personal comments and "I'm better than you" attacks, such as "You have no life."
* Threats or actions which expose other Wikipedia editors to political, religious or other persecution by government, their employer or any others. Violations of this sort may result in a block for an extended period of time which may be applied immediately by any sysop upon discovery. Sysops applying such sanctions should confidentially notify the members of the [[Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee]] and [[User:Jimbo Wales|Jimbo Wales]] of what they have done and why.
* Discuss the facts and how to express them, not the attributes of the other party. This does ''not'' mean that you have to agree with the other person, but just [[agree to disagree]].
* Read [[Wikipedia:Dispute resolution]].
If you are personally attacked, you may [[Wikipedia:remove personal attacks|remove the attacks]] or may follow the [[Wikipedia:dispute resolution|dispute resolution]] process or both. In extreme cases, the attacker may be [[Wikipedia:Blocking policy|blocked]], though the [[Wikipedia:Blocking policy/Personal attacks (old)|proposal to allow this]] failed and the practice is almost always controversial.
====A misguided notion: "Kicking them while they are down"====
'''Note:''' There are certain Wikipedia users who are unpopular, perhaps because of foolish or boorish behavior in the past. Such users may have been subject to disciplinary actions by the Arbitration Committee. It is only human to imagine that such users might be fair game for personal attacks. This notion is misguided.
It is your responsibility to foster and maintain a positive online community in Wikipedia. Personal attacks against ''any'' user - regardless of his/her past behaviour - is contrary to this spirit.
