Ten Commandments of Email

  • Thou shalt include a clear and specific subject line.
  • Thou shalt edit any quoted text down to the minimum thou needest.
  • Thou shalt read thine own message thrice before thou sendest it.
  • Thou shalt ponder how thy recipient might react to thy message.
  • Thou shalt check thy spelling and thy grammar.
  • Thou shalt not curse, flame, spam or USE ALL CAPS.
  • Thou shalt not forward any chain letter.
  • Thou shalt not use e-mail for any illegal or unethical purpose.
  • Thou shalt not rely on the privacy of e-mail, especially from work.
  • When in doubt, save thy message overnight and reread it in the light of the dawn.

    And, here's the "Golden Rule" of e-mail:

  • That which thou findest hateful to receive, sendest thou not unto others.

Ten more ....

  1. Delete That E-Mail [if it means nothing to you]
  2. Break Free from Attachments [that might convey viruses]
  3. Count to Ten, Then Send [think twice before flaming]
  4. There's Nothing Like the Real Thing [emotional -- or hazardous --things in person]
  5. A Stitch in Time [update address book; don't delete old contacts]
  6. Break the Chain [of endless e-mail forwarding]
  7. Rumor, Gossip, and Hearsay [bad!]
  8. Do Unto Others [a kindler, gentler Net]
  9. Personal Bandwidth [best impact in person; least through e-mail]
  10. No One Is Perfect [back off about grammar]
