Internet code of conduct

Code of conduct

The internet is based on co-operation of its constituents- users with users, service providers with other service providers and users and service providers with one another.

An internet society (ISOC) has developed the following guidelines of conduct.

1.Do not post to lists or boards or newsgroups whose purpose states no advertising.
2.Use browsing services such as WAIS, Gopher, and WWW to list products and services.
3.Use e-mail enabled information services like mailing lists to which users can subscribe or send the e-mail to obtain information.
