INTRODUCTION

Just like in the real world where people interact face to face or via telephone, netiquette and protocol must be acknowledged. The internet is one of the most ambigious forms of communication due to the way one can convey information to another person. This is why "Netiquette" was created. It is basically some guidelines of normative behavior for the internet. Awareness of these rules will help you communicate and interact with others with out any kind of problems or misunderstandings.

Rule 2. Follow the same rules online that you would in real life.

Disclaimer
The preceding was just my own views and opinions when addressing netiquette. There are different versions of these rules out there but these are the ones that I feel are the most important to me from my ten years of experience of being online. If you disagree with anything I have said here, that is ok.

If you have any questions or comments about anything I have said here, just email me and I will be glad to respond and help you out.
