Wheaton's Law: Don't Be A Dick

So to all those south of the Mason Dixon:

Also, California:

And for the kind and welcoming people of Hawaii:

And of course, my home state of New Jersey:

For the folks on Facebook who said they might want a bumper sticker or whatever, just right click and print it out. This message is really for everyone.

And thank you, Wil Wheaton, for your wisdom.
