Network Etiquette:Although you might be accustomed to using forms of electronic communication, such as text messaging and chat, communicating as part of a course involves a slightly different set of skills and conventions commonly referred to as “netiquette.” Netiquette covers a set of core rules for proper online behavior.Avoid using all capital letters as it can give the impression that you are shouting. If you want to emphasize a point, use asterisks around a word.Avoid personal attacks, called “flaming.” If you read a message that you suspect might be a personal attack, resist the temptation to fire off a response. Instead, let your response sit before sending or request that your instructor resolve the situation.Avoid offensive language or comments that attack the writer of the comment rather than his or her argument.Sourse: Baczewski, P. (1999). Network Connection: An Etiquette of E-mail. Retrieved February 6, 2010, from web site http://www.unt.edu/benchmarks/archives/1999/september99/netcom.htm
