Things I will and won't do when I am an Evil Counsellor

There are lists of advice for Evil Overlords, Heroes, Sidekicks, and True Loves, among others. But another group urgently in need of advice is Evil Counsellors. These people, from Haman through Wormtongue, though they seem tremendously clever, have a very high death rate in movies and novels. To help increase their chances of survival, I've come up with some suggestions of my own, and others on have added their own suggestions. Here are my suggestions, plus my favorites from theirs. Thanks to everyone who offered ideas for the list!
