Posting private e-mail may be healthy (though I can't imagine why),
interesting (no doubt), ethical, etc. etc. but it goes against netiquette
and is therefore rude. Another case - all caps. All caps is neither
unhealthy, boring, or unethical, etc. etc. - it's generally considered
rude. What is rude? When general mores of etiquette are ignored. Or
here's an example that's off the 'net: Cleaning out your nose in public
using a finger is also healthy, interesting, and maybe even ethical -- but
people generally don't do it out of politeness.

I bet I'll be sorry I got into this... I think I hate education
newsgroups. I'd almost rather that I didn't know what other educators
were thinking!
