I came across an article in the local paper that listed 10 Commandments of Personal Computing "Ethiquette". Here they are:

1. Thou shalt not use a program that thou hast not paid for.

2. Thou shalt not feel guilty about borrowing software to try out.

3. Thou shalt not bear false witness on bulletin boards.

4. Thou shalt not be stingy or arrogant with thy advice and assistance.

5. Thou shalt not inject viruses into thy neighbor's computer.

6. Thou shalt not treat women as computer inferiors.

7. Thou shalt support thy favorite bulletin board system.

8. Thou shalt mind thy P's and Q's and TLA's. (This in reference to the author's opinion that computer culture suffers from initialitis, especially TLA --three letter abbreviations)

9. Thou shalt not snoop in thy neighbor's files.

10. Thou shalt love thy computer as thyself.
