A modified version of Netiquette guidelines:
Below are a few basic principles of what has become known as Netiquette.
Identify yourself
Be sure to include a "signature" file: a personal snippet of information such as a name,
phone number, e-mail address, or memorable quote at the bottom of e-mail messages.
Keep it short. Three to five lines are quite sufficient.
Clear communication
Read all outgoing e-mail carefully; utilize a program for spell check.
When forwarding or re-posting, don't quote the entire text of the original message.
Instead, summarize that to which you are responding. In the online community, brevity is
a virtue.
Don't shout
Unless you intend to emphasize a point, refrain from typing words or phrases in all caps.
