Netiquette

Netiquette means the informal rules that individuals use for appropriate behavior on the Internet. There are many rules, but the important thing to remember is to use the same rules as you would use to write letters to your family or talking to adults. Emails are never completely deleted so never say anything you do not want repeated to others. Emails can be intercepted or forwarded.

Using all capital letters is considered shouting! SHOUTING! Therefore, try not to use all capitals when you write because you are considered as being impolite or rude. Check spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Avoid sarcasm because it may be taken to mean something different and come back to haunt you.
