The amount of sharpening you apply, like the amount of saturation or contrast, is entirely subjective. That said, the display media has a lot to do with how much is "right". For example, you may find that your prints "require" different sharpening than your web pics, and may also find that what looks right on one monitor does not look right on another.

This is true and should not be.

I don't follow.

I hate things that are subjective.

Ah, well that's a lot of hate, then.

I have a simple formula: whatever I think looks good.

That only works if you trust your own judgement more than everyone else in the world on the subject of sharpness.

You do know who you're speaking to, right?

In fact the best way out of this is to never post an image.

Doesn't sound like a "solution" to me.

Not for sharpness which is nebulous at best but it is a solution to the fallout.

Anyway, I will try this for a month or so and let you know how its working.

Well, as you know, I feel the photos you post are usually oversharpened.

Have you looked lately? Any less would be raw.

The degree of post processing required is proportional to the maturity of the technology. Zero would be ideal.
