Evil communication corrupts good manners. I hope to live to hear that good communication corrects bad manners.
Benjamin Banneker

I wouldn’t go as far as saying that the Internet or other digital bodes of communication are evil, but they certainly have complicated the notion of common courtesy. This blog, then, will focus on Netiquette and general etiquette in a digital world.

What do I mean by etiquette*?

the customary code of polite behavior in society or among members of a particular profession or group.


behavior in keeping with good taste and propriety

This blog is the product of a class assignment for English 109S – Digital Writing.
