I will keep this quite simple: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". If we all keep that in mind then we cannot go far wrong !

1) Respect one and all in the forum.
2) Respect others opinion, view point and never abuse anyone personally just because they dont think like you. Everyone is different. Always remember everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. Follow the policy of Live and let live.
3) Ask decent questions after all this is a virtual platform for meaningful, good, intellectual questions.
4) Give decent answers, and never get personal and abuse the questioner through your answer, just because you dont like the question.
5) If you dont like a particular question, just skip it, no need to answer it. Its as simple as that !!
6) Never post personal questions on any particular individual to tarnish his or her image. Its highly disrespectful and highly improper.
7) Dont hate anyone. If you dont like anyone for whatever reason, Just maintain distance and dont keep in touch. The problem gets solved automatically.
8) Dont hurt, humiliate, offend anyone. Its only when you GIVE respect ...more

1. Always be Polite. Give answers not in a slip-shod manner but take pains and frame an answer for every good question asked. Because when a good question is asked a lot of effort is behind it.
2.Always ask decent questions. Ask Open-ended questions. This forum should be used as a platform for interaction.For spreading love,for exchanging knowledge and information.For creating brotherhood and Unity.
3. Give Respect to each and every member. Never be Prejudiced towards one. Don't show Favoritism.
4. Follow Guidelines of Rediff Q&A. Try always to be your best self. Project only your good self.In that way,there would be no ill-feelings at all.
5.We are all one big family. We represent a Mini-India.Let us be symbolic of what India should be.Let us Show Unity in Diversity.

While answering be impersonal. Answer the Question, not the Questioner. Stick to the subject matter of the question. Answer only if you know the answer. Appreciate good and informative contributions by voting and suitable comments. Extend the comments through proper messages, provided the concerned member is willing to take them. Do not intrude in to privacy of other members. Be transparent and don't hide behind the veils by creating fake Id's.

Sir, in my opinion, whatever are the etiquette in correspondence and real life, the etiquette are mix of all those in the forum also.
Decent language, modest expression, proper salutations and express disagreement in a decent manner. What else?

1. Respect all and do not use meaningless remarks
2. Do not comment on BA unnecessarily . It is the right of the questioner only, to judge the best answer.
3. Do not use fake IDs to create controversies.

Do we need a prescribed guide for our conduct and actions? We have our conscience to guide us. That tells us what we must do and what we must not do. Despite that at times we refuse to hear that feeble voice of conscience. However, we may try to keep our best manners in parade; in adverse situations, our base nature comes to fore. Why does that happen?

The answer is because that etiquette is not part of our conduct. A good cook does not cook by referring to the book of recipe. Only a bad cook does that. If a person is well mannered in real life, he will be well mannered in virtual life too. How one does become well mannered?

The lessons in etiquette one receives early in life. If mother shouts and talk to her children, the children also shout back at her. If mother sings and talk to her children, the children also sing and talk. There is music in their voice.

There is no need to make a conscious effort to make a display of good etiquettes. We must behave as naturally, as we ...more
