Do we need ethics on the Internet, or is Skype "ICQ" not a friend?

Every day the global Internet network covers an increasing number of people, because it offers fantastic opportunities. We need to prepare a report, go to Google, and any teacher will note the depth and thoughtfulness of judgments (let the judgments and not their own, but still ...). Need to buy something? Please, the online store is always at hand, just click on the mouse. And movies? And toys? What is there to say, the Internet has really become a virtual world with millions of users living in it. That's just one big BUT ...

On the Internet people do not see each other (the exception is Skype, where people using webcams can see each other and hear). It's hard to say whether it's good or bad. This is a philosophical question. Someone, taking a bright nickname, can feel more confident, live a completely different, interesting life, and someone so, not seeing the interlocutor's eye, even more convenient. Why?

Our society at least, but still lives in accordance with even the simplest laws of etiquette. And to scold someone just like that in person, just because "I want to eat" is somehow not accepted. And on the Internet everything is easier - write what you want, whoever you want, you can not be seen anyway, so you do not even need to apologize. And you can "pin and abruptly" by sending someone a letter with the virus. Therefore, on the Internet, it is especially necessary to remember not only the rules of etiquette, but also ethical norms.

Briefly, here, as in life, everything can be reduced to one capacious, eternal and difficult to fulfill: "STAY WITH OTHERS AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO COME WITH YOU." But all techniques usually involve breaking up the material into paragraphs, paragraphs, rules, etc. etc., so we will not deviate from the classics ...

Rule 1.

To write a message or send a smiley to ISQ or in an email, it's best to use the algorithm:

comprehension of what I want to say - understanding what I want to say - an attempt to imagine what a person will feel when receiving a message - to better imagine developing a fantasy and imagine that I got it - if negative emotions did not arise, I send a message - if the same there was a nasty feeling "in my opinion they are trying to offend me", I start with the first paragraph of the algorithm.

Rule 2.

Briefly it can be designated as follows: "They do not go with their charter in a foreign monastery". Now we correlate with communication on the Internet. Before you write your first message on the forum or in any community, take the trouble to first learn the local rules that people communicate in this virtual space.

Rule 3.

Take care of the time of your interlocutors. If you feel that the correspondence was delayed, and your virtual "interlocutor" with a shudder is waiting for your next letter, it's better to politely say goodbye and continue the correspondence at another time.

Asking for advice or assistance on the forum, try not to forget to thank people for the service you provided, and if you can help, then help.

Rule 4.

Discussion about whether "the truth is born in dispute or, conversely, dies" does not stop until now. But whatever point of view you do not adhere to, try to ensure that your dispute at the forum does not turn into a complete swearing and swearing.

Rule 5.

To spy on the keyhole is bad, it's even worse to run and tell everything in detail what you saw there, but it's too foolish to think that after this someone will respect you. Therefore, if you suddenly think about publishing information from a private letter for public view or getting into someone else's mailbox, be sure that you will not be contacted either by those whom you set up or by whom you set them up. The first for quite understandable reasons, and the second - not to be in place of the first.

The Internet allows not only to brighten up leisure, but also to earn money, therefore every day there are new sites. The following few rules are suitable for site owners or those who are going to create them.

Rule 1.

Plagiarism has never done anybody honor, so when creating a website, make sure that the information posted on it is yours.

Rule 2.

During the screenings of films, advertising of a very specific nature often appears. The situation is exacerbated if you watch the movie with the child and have to explain "who and why this aunt invites." Therefore, it would be great if this kind of advertising was on the same kind of sites. Then the information would reach exactly to those who want to receive it, and there would not be blunders.

Well, in the end

Rule 3.

You behave yourself ethically, and the day before yesterday you were cursed, yesterday you ignored your question, and today you sent the virus. What to do? Or maybe, well, these are their rules, and it's worth asking people with "reciprocal greetings." This should not be done. In creating the ethics of the Internet, someone should be the first, and the pioneers (I mean the pioneers) remain in the centuries.
