  1. Good rules to follow in order to offend as little as possible differ depending on the people in the group. The better you know people, the better you understand what rules are good to follow.

    Some examples of rules one can consider to follow:

    Avoid sharing personal information especially if it belongs to someone other than yourself.
    If you eat something, offer to share.
    Avoid mentioning opinions related to politics or religion unless someone else mentioned it first and you want to agree with them.
    Avoid joking about sex, feminism, racism, politics or religion, and don’t be offended if you hear a joke.
    Even if you think someone is doing something wrong, don’t correct them. If they look like a fool and has been laughed at before though, then make sure to draw everyone’s attention.
    If you accidentally say or do something that seem to offend people, then make a fool out of yourself quickly, so they think you don’t mean what you did.
    That’s what came to mind thinking about it for a short while. Also, the culture your group is in can also influence what rules are good to a high degree.

    I usually don’t follow these rules so strictly, as I don’t mind so much that people get offended by me.
