E-mail etiquette and best practices, aka, how not to be a complete fracking n00b
I was about to educate a co-worker on some of the better practices to follow while communicating on the Internet, and being the generous chap that I am, decided to share these invaluable nuggets of my infinite wisdom with you lot. So, here goes:
- Format: Never send e-mails in HTML format. Always use plain-text only.
- Subject: Always use a descriptive subject line. Subject lines such as "Hi" and "Please help" will get your behind flamed.
