The Mannerly Art of Disagreement, or Jeffersonian Debate Is Alive and Well on the Internet was authored by Macedon pre-1999 as a companion to Peg Robinson's essay The Mannerly Art of Critique.

It is a guide for fans engaging in online disagreements. It forms the basis of ASC policy and is sent out as part of the regular ASC FAQ. It originally appeared on usenet and has been a regular part of FAQ postings since before 1999.
