Epolicy as part of Netiquette

In  modern business it is not the crook who is to be feared most, it is the honest man who doesn’t know what he is doing.

—William Wordsworth

          Epolicy and Netiquette are closely interrelated. Most epolicies, whether they are personal, those of small groups or large corporations, have core Netiquette principals. A policy is as defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary: “a definite course or method of action selected from alternatives and in light of given condition to guide and determine present and future decisions.” Although the term epolicy has not been officially designated as a real word by certain reference works, it is a term generally used by many to reflect the procedures for maintaining email, messaging, or Internet usage rules.
        Essentially, epolicies are put into practice in order to provide rules, guidelines, security, adherence to laws, optimization of resources, and standards by anyone using email. As the proliferation of email grows, so does the necessity of epolicies. Many businesses have a complete set of standard epolicies, which include disclaimers, in place. I will continue to elaborate on different types of epolicies in future blogs. Every epolicy category should have specific terms and language. My book, that is listed below, is one great single source of a large number of these.

When you receive an email with an epolicy statement trailer, remember to delete it when you respond to avoid confusion or unnecessary verbiage in the thread. Some threads can have multiple disclaimers in them!
