For some reason people mistakenly think it is OK to be rude or disrespectful when behind a keyboard and screen. Just ask yourself, would I say this to their face? If not, why are you saying it all? Showing disrespect or rudeness in a written format simply showcases your embarrassing misstep for all to see. Don't be that guy.
Damaging the reputation of a brother is a masonic offense in every jurisdiction I have ever been to. There is no difference that can exist among brothers that requires one brother to resort to a public forum for resolution. When someone does this, it tends to destroy their own reputation, not the target thereof. Many expelled masons have taken to the public forum out of anger and resentment. This tends to make them look like angry children who were told to go to their rooms. Don't find yourself among them.
