Lurk before you leap. Get a feel for what is considered to be acceptable in this community before posting.
Behave as you would in a real life conversation and remember it is other people you are talking to.
The Internet brings so many people together yet makes conversation very impersonal without the use of gesture
or expression. To prevent misunderstanding use smilies to show your mood or intent. Also avoid the use of
capital letters as this is deemed to be shouting and thus rude.
Be tolerant of other people, particularly when their opinion differs from your own.
Be forgiving of mistakes or lack of Internet knowledge. Many people are new to the Internet so they may ask questions
that seem obvious or stupid. Think twice before reacting, it is better to politely educate people rather than insult them.
Finally, one of the most important tips is do not over react, particularly as many comments are made in jest.
Banter, wind-ups and put downs are acceptable within forum etiquette.
