It concerns me how common it seems for people to interpret the Golden Rule "do unto others as you would have them do to you" in its shallowest form.

I'd certainly prefer to have others do to me as I would want done! That's the courtesy I try to extend, which I sometimes refer to by its relationship to the Golden Rule.

Perhaps my mistake is to even make reference to a Christian tenet, as highly analysed, interpreted, and abused as the Bible can be? I take the last line of the Wiccan Rede as referring to the same concept -- again, so long as you don't interpret it in the shallowest way.
