Compliment your enemy, learn from them, do better. Who knows: some of the people you play with/against might prove a potential candidate for your team or Fleet.[/list]

I can't agree more here. We have the ability to communicate with our enemies; I can't tell you how many times now I've made a friend cross-faction because of a great conversation had during or in the aftermath of combat.

Those people who treat the anonymity of online play as a get out of jail free card and cuss or slander their allies and enemies do absolutely nothing to help them or anyone. It's childish and makes you look like a fool, even if you don't feel it at the time.

Grace and dignity are great ways to improve yourself, directly and indirectly.
