Three ways to avoid gossipping:

1. He will carefully avoid all gossip, idle chatter, empty babble, and void hearsay

2. He will persuade others also to avoid all pointless good-for-nothing speech

3. He will praise speaking well formulated reasoned facts worth remembering

(from Samyutta Nikaya 55.7)
