Separate content from tone should be the whole of the law. Empty snark can profitably be ignored, and should be, but do not hide from matters of substance behind tone arguments! Nor give in to contentless whining when presented giftwrapped and tied with a pretty professional bow! The beauty of this law is that it addresses both angry substance and substanceless anger.
