The Ultimate Internet Commenting Guidelines

At the end of a piece on the "History of Atmospheric Carbon Changes," and the measurements represented by the Keeling curve, a rather cranky Barry Ritholz posted this, which made me laugh. Not that such a statement would be necessary at Scanners (you're better than that) -- but I can think of lots of places on the Internet where this would be fitting:
