What is Netiquette:
Netiquette [Net Etiquette] is way of behaving on the Internet. According to ,
Netiquette is etiquette on the Internet. Since the Internet changes rapidly, its
netiquette does too, but it's still usually based on the Golden Rule. The need for a sense
of netiquette arises mostly when sending or distributing e-mail, posting on Usenet groups, or chatting. To some extent, the practice of
netiquette depends on understanding how e-mail, the Usenet, chatting, or other aspects of
the Internet actually work or are practiced. So a little preliminary observation can help.
Poor netiquette because you're new is one thing, but such practices as spam and flaming
are another matter.
