As you mention, being prepared, both offline and online, is key to empowerment. Danger exists in the real world and in our virtual world. Preparing one's self for these dangers can literally save one's life. Being prepared, however, is only one step, albeit an important one. We also must take responsibility for ensuring that the websites we control do not condone rude or abusive behavior. In fact, we should not only take action against such behavior when it happens, but we should actively encourage respectful behavior beforehand.

1. Be respectful in your own communications.
2. Encourage respectful behavior on any sites you own or manage.
3. Take action against unacceptable behavior on any sites you own or manage.
4. Be prepared in your own life for potential threats that may occur in the future, offline or online. Bad things can and do happen. Knowing how to handle such situations alleviates fear and enables and empowers you.
5. Abusers come in all shapes, sizes, colors, ages and genders. Abusers target people of all shapes, sizes, colors, ages and genders. No one, regardless of their gender, race, or any other "classification" should be a target of abuse.

In the wisdom of the 60's, "Peace".
