I am in the chat support class in which thay have a nice discussion about being professional during chats and stuff. We should also be considerate about choosing words before hitting the send button. This should be applicable in other popular sites in Facebook as some of the users are not sensitive about what would other think about their posts or shout outs. I think it also applies here in our website as well. Having respect for other's point of view in a given topic is also important. It's a good think we have good web administrators who's checking posts ever now and then. And I'm really glad other users are responsible also. What does "Netiquette" or Net Etiquette mean to you?

One should always be considerate as to what words are chosen as, once spoken (or typed and sent) they cannot be taken back. It all boils down to manners, common courtesy and respect for your fellow beings.

I trully agree Suebee, I think you are point on with your post. Being/having respect for others is large.....

But can be learn through proper resources and peer education. Checking what they can do before posting counts. This also needs sensitivity including thinking about the grounds or effects in public before posting it or ask for other's feedback before putting their thoughts in general.

Of course one can always learn through many avenues. The day we stop learning would be a sad day indeed. I guess "netiquette" comes natural for some and others actually have to learn or be taught it. However, in today's society I feel that anyone old enough to be on these discussion sites should already have acquired the basics of manners, common courtesy and respect and if anything, it should be just a matter of fine tuning these already acquired skills.

Just like in everything else it's sad to say that everybody's just screaming "freedom of speech" and forgot to turn on values. I don't think Netiquette is important. If one is already accustomed to show respect in real life, then there's no need to be taught how to show proper etiquette online. However, if one obviously lacks proper etiquette in real life, no amount of 'learning' about it would ever change a person. Values and etiquette are learnt at home. One cannot expect a good person out of a family that swears, abuses, and disrespects its household. Which is why parents (and not just one parent) is necessary. Why? Well, one parent nurtures and one disciplines. You can't have them both else the child would be confused. Anyhow, that's another topic. But I still believe netiquette is unnecessary if etiquette is already achieved at home. Obviously a lot of people on Facebook and social internet sites have not gone through a good family life. Have a great MyLot experience ahead!

They get too abussive with the "freedom of speech" part. If everyone has the freedom; why we still have this so-called "online bullies"? And for once they're banning those hate speechers but for the benefit of many; what will happen for those who shouldn't be seeing that online? Should we imply a subject in teaching them online for those who haven't get the opportunity to learn this manner? I mean; business deals are also made online. It's also a powerful knowledge that we should learn if we want to be prim and prompt as possible.

I still don't think it should be learnt. I think it's just one of the many things that are unnecessary. Yes, there are emails in businesses but most of the business correspondences use standard formats, therefore no need of writing long letters or the like. Anyhow, it's actually part of the curriculum for business communications if you enroll in a University. They have a subject with all types of business correspondences and how it's done which includes face-to-face or conversational manners, table etiquette, phone etiquette, interview etiquette, and I believe internet etiquette is also discussed there. But all these would not be worthwhile if one doesn't have GMRC during their primary years (Good Manners and Right Conduct).

I'm also glad that here in Mylot there are moderators that keeps the peace in this place. I think that's the edge of Mylot to Facebook, because in FB, anyone can bash anyone. Netiquette is basically the etiquette or the standards in online communication.
