    the bottom line is, behave online as you would in a face-to-face meeting. some people take advantage of the net's anonymity to do or say things they wouldn't dare do F2F.

    Re: How To Behave On An Internet Forum

    It's true that people join forums for different reasons. Some are to learn, some are to share knowledge, some to spite or be "controversial", and some for no apparent reason, and some even just to get attention.

    I agree with soloworx - "sticky" this for everyone's information/reminder.

    Haha, that is quite a funny video. macychic make a really good sharing of link of unwritten rules once you’re online. I believe if you’re just a newbies in the cyber world or community –just be yourself, not the trying hard type of persons. Not trying to impress but to share. Whatever we post online will stay in cyber world or leave trace. If along the way we accidentally hurt people be prepared to apologize, but be sincere in our apology. Let me share an interesting article online: http://iamsheamus.com/2008/06/10/a-problem-of-opinion/

    Because we need to know and we need to be reminded once in a while, I have placed a sticky on this thread. Unless other further actions need to be taken regarding this thread for whatever reason, we will at present make this more accessible.

    entertaining and informative. Thanks for the link macychic! :)

    I just hope that the muggers who actually need this find time to watch it. How great it would be if everyone practiced forum etiquette.

    I second the emotion. Talk about informative. It's so unnecessary for people to have to SHOUT USING ALL CAPS. also when some use unheard of words that we still have to find out what they mean.
