Netiquette IQ And The Private, Secure Internet - Conflicting Values From The USA

 ============================================
Different explanations can be given for the same thing and both be right! Although privacy on the Internet is desired by most netizens, the downside, in part, can mean more undetectable activity by criminals or terrorists among others. Even the US government id divided on this topic.

The article below explains real-life examples.
============================================
Good Netiquette And A Green Internet To All!

============================================ 


Secretary Of State: We Must Have A Secure Internet; Homeland Security Secretary: A Secure Internet Makes Us All Less Safe – from techdirt.com
from the watch-out-for-the-buts dept

Secretary of State John Kerry gave a speech in South Korea this week about the importance of an"open and secure internet." Of course, that sounds a little hypocritical coming from the very same government that is actively working to undermine encryption, so it seems worth contrasting it with comments made from Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, in which he whines about a secure internet making things better for terrorists. Kerry's speech is mostly good (with some caveats that we'll get to), in talking about the importance of not freaking out over moral panics and FUD:
Freedom. The United States believes strongly in freedom – in freedom of expression, freedom of association, freedom of choice. But particularly, this is important with respect to freedom of expression, and you believe in that freedom of expression here in Korea. We want that right for ourselves and we want that right for others even if we don’t agree always with the views that others express. We understand that freedom of expression is not a license to incite imminent violence. It’s not a license to commit fraud. It’s not a license to indulge in libel, or sexually exploit children. No. But we do know that some governments will use any excuse that they can find to silence their critics and that those governments have responded to the rise of the internet by stepping up their own efforts to control what people read, see, write, and say.

This is truly a point of separation in our era – now, in the 21st century. It’s a point of separation between governments that want the internet to serve their citizens and those who seek to use or restrict access to the internet in order to control their citizens.
That sounds good... until you compare it to Kerry's cabinet partner Johnson, who was doing exactly what Kerry said governments should not do:
“We are concerned that with deeper and deeper encryption, the demands of the marketplace for greater cybersecurity, deeper encryption in basic communications,” Johnson said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday. “It is making it harder for the FBI and state and local law enforcement to track crime, to track potential terrorist activity.”
Let's not even bother with the question of just what is "deeper and deeper encryption" or why we should have someone who clearly doesn't understand encryption in charge of Homeland Security. But it seems clear that Kerry and Johnson's views here are quite different. Kerry is saying that "governments will use any excuse they can" including bogus claims about "terrorism" and "criminals" -- and yet that's exactly what Johnson is doing.

Of course, later in his speech, Kerry starts enumerating a similar list for any country to use, should they want to control speech as well:
First, no country should conduct or knowingly support online activity that intentionally damages or impedes the use of another country’s critical infrastructure. Second, no country should seek either to prevent emergency teams from responding to a cybersecurity incident, or allow its own teams to cause harm. Third, no country should conduct or support cyber-enabled theft of intellectual property, trade secrets, or other confidential business information for commercial gain. Fourth, every country should mitigate malicious cyber activity emanating from its soil, and they should do so in a transparent, accountable and cooperative way. And fifth, every country should do what it can to help states that are victimized by a cyberattack.

Netiquette Basic Attributes For Email Subject Lines - Netiquette IQ Blog Of 5/22/2015

============================================


Subject Fields

The Subject field is your entry to your next job opportunity. If your email is not opened, you will not be able to go any further. Recent sources indicate that almost 70 percent of email users report emails as spam based on the content of the subject line alone. The Subject field is a crucial component to getting your email and résumé read. The following is a list of points to stick to when composing subject lines to assist any sender in maximizing the success rate of getting their emails opened. Keep in mind that some email will have more mistakes than they do words!

1.   Keep the length between three and nine words.
2.   Never ever leave a subject line blank. This cannot be emphasized enough
3.   Avoid overused buzz words (see the matrix later in this chapter for a list of the most common ones).
4.   Do not use question or exclamation marks unless they are necessary as readers may take them as red flags for spam.
5.   Avoid spam triggers.
6.   Refrain from using emoticons altogether.
7.   Use a recipient’s company logo to add to a subject field .
8.   Do not abbreviate a word unless the shortened one is very well known and accepted in formal contexts.
9.   Always use a positive tone. Good tone generates trust. Even a short phrase used in a Subject field can convey a negative tone. An example is, “Haven’t heard from you.”
10.        Do not use imperatives. One would be, “Call me now!”
11.        Do not use a Subject line to write a salutation such as “My valued recruiter:” or a similar phrase.

Subject fields are the key, if not most critical, part of an email. Almostanythingnegative in the content can result in the message being discarded, and similarly, but not always, even the most wildly enthusiastic content can serve to have the correspondence opened. Nonetheless, the more conservative approaches are usually the best ways to begin. There are suggestions within this book for less conventional methods when the basic core methods are not successful. Utilize these properly and you will get more emails opened, interviews and job offers!
