N-etiquette rose Etiquette on the net is almost as fast evolving as life's new little rudenesses.  Everything on this site is an opinion based on the Golden Rule and the Manners of the Old South.  There is legitimate cultural reason for differences of opinion in etiquette for the net. 

Good etiquette shows respect for others.  In large cities, the greatest etiquette breach is to "waste someone's time";  in rural areas, the greatest etiquette breach is to be curt with someone.  No one has yet determined the nature of the internet in this respect.  Certainly, when dealing with a large company, one might expect that good manners would show a respect for time.  Many companies on the net, however, are virtual offices - these people that you might contact have little human interaction, and may consider clipped responses to be rude.
