    These are great tips. I appreciate the article and poster.

    My comments are meant to be constructive and helpful, since English is not your native language. The word “mail” is already plural and should not get an “s” on the end. Emails and letters (for snail mail) do get an “s” when plural, but mail refers collectively to your entire batch of emails or letters. I recommend that the article and manifesto change the word “mails” to either “emails” or “mail”. I believe that more people would share it if it was grammatically correct.

    The same rule applies to the word “software”, which should not be expressed as “software” because the word is already plural.

      Hi Susan, English is my native language.

      Thanks for pointing out the errors – I’ll fix them in a bit.

      Update: Ok, they are all updated now. :D

    Unfortunately, many people take 4. as an excuse to bluntly ignore people. I find that very frustrating when I send an email to, let’s say a student society, and they never reply. At least be honest to your audience and don’t give an e-mail address if you’re never gonna reply!

    This could actually make the list: don’t give out your email address too freely :)

      Hey Jade, that’s true. Some people conveniently ignore emails when they can at the least drop a simple reply. I used to get annoyed by people who don’t respond, but after that I just learned to take the non-response after X days as a “nay”. It has worked out pretty well.

      I definitely agree with not giving out email address freely too. Though in my case, there have been site visitors who guess or hunt down for my personal email address online to reach me, which I found intrusive. I pretty much just do #4 or block off those emails in such cases.
