Netiquette Rules

Do you know all the rules for internet etiquette? I found a helpful article by Justin Smallbridge with netiquette helpful hints. Here are some valuable rules he highlighted: Shrink your vocabulary, it's okay to express emotion but keep your anger in check, and do not use all capital letters. Capital letters indicate yelling and there is already enough of this in the real world. A few acronyms are presented such as WYSIWYG- What you see is what you get. For a chuckle, there are examples of how to respond to arguments with rock-n-roll comebacks! To view this appropriately titled journal article "Always Let the Lady Download First" go to:

Smallbridge., J. (1995). `Always let the lady downloads first...'. Canadian Business, 68(5), 10.
