1. Make sure your account’s name is anonymous.
2. Say something without thinking about it first.
3. Say something really mean and condescending and macho and righteous without punctuation and with at least two exclamation marks. Don’t sign off.
4. End your insult in a vague ellipses, signifying that you couldn’t spare the time to complete your own thought because you had to get busy s*****g your own d**k, you’re so impressed with how macho you are when you’re anonymous.
5. Criticise the author, who doesn’t have the luxury of anonymity, for being negative or critical by being negative and critical.
