OK, I see the smiley, but I want to say that it is about truth at least as much as niceness.  Lack of critical thinking skills is just as notable online as the lack of civility.  Often they happen at the same time.  When a person uses insults and ad hominem arguments to express disagreement, it is a failure both of logic and of charity. 

Like DK said, if we leave out the truth then it is false charity.  Real charity must be accompanied by truth.
