Netiquette IQ Quotation of 11/26/14

 In my book (discussed below ) and this blog, I have discussed words and phrases which inherently often lack a sincere tone. Many of these are trite or taken for granted. One of the worst is the phrase, "to be honest with you". Does this mean you are not always honest or were not so recently? Good Netiquette seeks to avoid these types of words and phrases and you should as well!

“Sometimes when persons say definitely it sounds actually less true.”
Emma Donoghue
In addition to this blog, I have authored the premiere book on Netiquette, "Netiquette IQ - A Comprehensive Guide to Improve, Enhance and Add Power to Your Email". You can view my profile, reviews of the book and content excerpts at:
