Does it drive you nuts when you receive an email riddled with spelling and punctuation errors to the point that it is rendered nearly illegible? Do you find that friends, acquaintances, and strangers email things to you that they would not say to your face? The E-mail Etiquette Revolution is here for you. Sign their pledge:
- I will do my best and make an effort to learn about and follow proper E-mail Etiquette so I can communicate with courtesy and clarity so as to avoid misunderstandings.
- I will do my best to ensure I don’t hide behind this screen to say and do things I would otherwise not do if face-to-face with those I e-mail.
- I will do my best to make an effort to understand technology enough to be able to use it properly so that my lack of knowledge doesn’t have a negative impact on those I communicate with.
Note: The E-mail Etiquette Revolution spells email with a hyphen. I do not. According to Wikipedia, there is some debate about which spelling is preferable, but neither is considered incorrect.
