Computers and Communication

Using your computer to communicate with others involves acting with the same respect and consideration that you use in the non-virtual world. Human contact still matters, along with what you say and how you say it. Just because most forms of communication are now instant and quick, does not mean that grammar and spelling need be ignored. Always be aware of who's around you, whose time you're on, and always double-check before you hit "send."
