Duo's Opinions on the Importance of Netiquette

So, you wanna know about Netiquette, huh? Well, you've come to the right place. I just happen to know all about Netiquette. You can find the Core Rules of Netiquette here. There's a handy little Netiquette quiz at the same site, for those of you who think you know it all already. ;)

Basically, Netiquette - and all etiquette - boils down to doing unto others as you'd have done unto you. It's not easy, and there are some people out there who make it even harder, but that's what you've gotta do if you're gonna be a mature and contributing member of any community.

The reason that it's important to know and follow the rules of Netiquette? Because if you don't, you come across like a severely inbred, redneck hick with a Hitler complex. Trust me, if you want to awe and inspire people, making an ass out of yourself isn't the way to do it.

Netiquette - Learn it. Love it. Live it. Otherwise, you'll never understand why the rest of us are laughing at you.
