    No Need to Be Rude

    There is no reason for people to be disrespectful of others while online. This is after all an open forum. I have my own protocol for behavior when I am here. I treat my friends and potential friends with all due respect and courtesy. We all have our own opinions and views on...

    It Is Easy

    It is easy to sit at home, behind your computer, and be a bully. If someone had to face the other person face to face they wouldn't be so ready to be rude or mean. There is a term for that. You take that stuff out of a chicken coop and put it in your garden.

    Manners Maketh Man

    I think the way anyone interacts in a respectful manner to people in real life, should be applied online as well.  Sometimes, I go into chat rooms and people are so rude, aggressive and obnoxious.  I suppose they feel that once you cannot see them or know who they are, this...

    Um, Excuse Me?

    Okay, I'll acknowledge that trolls will be trolls.  Some folks are just like that.  That does not mean it's okay to be rude or nasty to somebody just because you're hidden behind a screen name!  I've seen an alarming decline in common courtesy in the real world...

    A Face Of Pure Light

    Manners are important everywhere. The internet should not be an exception. It doesn't matter that we can't see each other. Behind that screen is a human being, someone with REAL feelings, REAL thoughts. Someone who remembers. Just because we can't see the details of the...

    Higher-end Communication

    I Am Not Asking For You To Agree

    Internet Manners?

    Seems almost a contradiction in terms at times -- so many people seem to feel that because they are anonymous on the net then they don't have to exhibit manners because they don't have to take responsibility for what they say.

    Something You Can Count On

    I believe that good manners and common courtesy are always important regardless of where you are-- and that includes the internet.  Etiquette, in some form or another, is a feature of every culture, and therefore a part of culture itself.  Unnecessary rudeness is not only...

    They're very important.

    Respect

    You’re still taking to people, just not having them hear: just see. If you’re unruly in real, then rather keep that away from hurting others with unwanted comments. If you think it’s cool, boy, do you have a big thing coming your way. If you have nothing nice...
