NETIQUETTE GUIDELINES Distance conveys a degree of anonymity, and as a result, many people feel less inhibited in online situations than in their everyday lives. This lessening of inhibitions sometimes leads people to drop their normal standards of decorum when communicating online. In response, good cybercitizens have developed, over the years, an informal set of guidelines for online behavior called Netiquette . Netiquette can be summarized by three simple precepts: Remember that there is a human being on the other end of your communication, treat that human being with respect, and do not transmit any message that you wouldn’t be willing to communicate face to face. Some specific guidelines include: Be careful what you write about others. Assume that anyone about whom you are writing will read your comments or receive them by some circuitous route. Be truthful. Do not pretend to be someone or something that you are not. Be brief. Receiving and reading messages costs time and money.
