Rules on Netiquette.

  • Take Another Look Before You Send a Message. Reread and reconsider the whole message when you return to it, possibly from the recipient's perspective.
  • Avoid offensive comments. Anything obscene, libellous, offensive or racist does not belong in a company email, even as a joke.
  • Do Not Spam. It is proper netiquette to refrain from sending unsolicited messages through the internet or responding to them.
  • Don't expect an answer right away. Email messages may be delivered quickly, but your recipient may not read it right away.
  • Do not give out personal information. This is a safety precaution. You could end up getting hurt.
  • Keep your message cool. Email messages can easily be misinterpreted because we don't have the tone of voice or body language to gives us further cues.
  • Include the message thread. Keep the original message for a record of your conversation.
  • Don't type in all CAPS. It's perceived as YELLING. However, don't write with only small letters, as this is perceived as your being lazy, because it makes it more difficult for people to read.
