Netiquette

Here are some tips for internet and email etiquette:

  • Keep your messages short and to the point
  • Don't send messages to people who don't need to receive them
  • Never send an e-mail message that you wouldn't want broadcast on the evening news
  • Be thoughtful about clipping and pasting others' messages in those you send
  • If you receive a message sent to a list of people, do not respond needlessly to the entire list
  • Use a professional tone in your messages
  • Use the grammar and spell checks before sending your messages
  • Capitalize words only to highlight an important point, or use asterisks to surround a word you want to emphasize
  • Be careful when using sarcasm and humor. Your "joke" could be misunderstood.
