internet politeness

I cant believe word wars are happening in VJ. I stumble upon an article online about internet politeness...please take time to read. (F)

When you live in a society, you live by a certain set of rules. These rules exist to make the world a better place. Don't shoot people. Don't yell "Fire!" in a crowded theater. Don't rip pages out of a library book. You get the idea.

The Internet has rules, too.

Why they aren't as enforceable as your state or local laws, these rules DO exist to make the Internet a better place for all. If you don't abide by these standards set by the Internet community, you can quickly be ostracized by your online peers.

  1. Communicate Clearly and Politely
  2. Be Brief
  3. Keep to the Topic
  4. DON'T SCREAM WHEN YOU TYPE A MESSAGE IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, IT LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE SCREAMING. IN ADDITION, IT IS MUCH HARDER TO READ.
  5. Don't get into a FLAME war

    Any message written to infuriate the recipient is referred to as a flame. Flames often contain
    obscenities
    and
    put-downs
    ,
    and are not recognized as civilized conversation
    . The term is also used as a verb: if I send nasty e-mails to a colleague, then I have flamed him. It is a very bad faux-pas to flame someone, so if you are feeling angry at someone, the best thing to do is to turn off your computer for awhile. You should never put your anger into writing.
  6. If you are on the receiving end of a flame -- do not respond. Ignore it. If you respond in kind with another flame, then what started out as a conversation turns into a flame war (a nasty argument). Public flame wars in chat rooms or on listserves will only get the rest of the participants angry at you. Avoid this at all costs. Your delete key is always available to you to get rid of flames that are sent your way.

  7. Watch what you say

El Presidente of VJ

regalame una sonrisita con sabor a viento

tu eres mi vitamina del pecho mi fibra

tu eres todo lo que me equilibra,

un balance, lo que me conplementa

un masajito con sabor a menta,

I think the internet makes it more difficult because some people feel they can hide behind their faceless comments and say whatever they want without regard to how that effects anyone. You have to wonder if these same people are so rude in person.


Life's just a crazy ride on a run away train

You can't go back for what you've missed

So make it count, hold on tight find a way to make it right

You only get one trip

So make it good, make it last 'cause it all flies by so fast

You only get one trip

Lady, people aren't chocolates. Do you know what they are mostly? Bastards. ####### coated bastards with ####### filling. But I don't find them half as annoying as I find naive bobble-headed optimists who walk around vomiting sunshine.

I'm pretty rude in person, but only to people that I feel deserve it :P

My favorite form of sneaky mean is saying that my cashier at walmart wasn't friendly. Does anyone else answer those questions on the screen of the credit card machine? If they're not friendly and smiley and talkative I push no. My mom thinks I'm horrible for doing it. Also, I like to tell them the store wasn't clean. I forget the other questions they ask. It's been a month or so since I've gone to walmart.

Don't believe me? Ask Mags when she gets back. She's been ashamed to be in public with me more than once.
