How to go from stabby to constructive criticism on the Internet in three easy steps:

1. Upon discovering that you are feeling stabby because someone on the Internet is wrong (or whatever other reason), write out your response on a piece of paper, or in a private document.

2. Step away from the computer, or put away the mobile device, and do something that is guaranteed to make you less stabby. Everybody has something that never fails to bring a smile.

3. Read the thing that made you stabby again, then consider your response. Ask yourself three questions:
a. Will your response change anything as it is?
b. How would you feel if someone responded to you in that way?
c. Is it worth it?

This should leave you with a better idea about how to respond, and indeed whether to respond or not!

Of course, these steps don't apply if the only thing that makes you happy is being stabby...

Also, if this post makes you feel stabby, let me point you to step one... ;)
