Proper chat room etiquette
Like any other form of communication, you need to use proper etiquette while in chat rooms. Find out some basic guidelines by reading this article!
Chat rooms are a very popular as well as a very busy place for people to hang out on the Internet. It is a good place to meet and talk to people from all around the world. It is just like the telephone or being at a party though, becuase chat room involvement requires that everyone use the proper etiquette. Proper etiquette is needed for good relationships and good communication with other people, and it also makes the chat room experience a fun one.
Here are some basic chat room rules of proper etiquette that will help your chat room experiences be more pleasant for you as well as the others in the room.
Rule Number One-
This is probably the most important rule. Do not verbally abuse, attack, embarrass, or threaten anyone else in the chat room, no matter what they might say to you. You are bound to find some troublemakers on the Internet. But, the best way to deal with them is to just ignore them or simply leave the room.
Rule Number Two-
Do not use obscene, offensive, or sexually explicit language. You don't need to use this kind of language in order to speak to someone or to get your point across to others.
Rule Number Three-
Never type your messages in by using all capital letters. On the Internet, this is considered to be screaming or yelling at another person, and, of course, this is nothing short of rude. If you want to *emphasize* a word or phrase, simply type an asterisk in before and then directly after your word or phrase. This is a widely recognized way to get your point across without being rude.
Rule Number Four-
There are two things that are sometimes typical, especially with young chatters, that you really should not do. One is what is commonly known as the Sex Check. This is when someone in the room sends a message to everyone asking whether they are M (males), or F (female). This is not generally considered to be in good taste unless you are in a chat room that is specifically for people who are looking for a love interest.
Remember how it is bad manners to ask someone, especially a woman, their age? Well, the same rule applies to an Internet chat room. Never ask everyone in the room how old they are. This is another typical thing done by young chatters who want to meet a guy or girl.
Rule Number Five-
When you are entering a chat room, you should always greet everyone whether you know them or not. Be sure to wait until there is a lull in the conversation already in progress, though. Don't interrupt. And, when someone else enters the room, you should make it a point to at least recognize their presence and greet them with a friendly "Hi (their screen name)!"
Rule Number Six-
Don't speak unless you know what the conversation is about first. And, in speaking while in a chat room, don't type in long, detailed messages that will take alot of time and space. Also, never interrrupt someone else. Be patient; you will get your chance to speak.
By following these rules, your chat room experiences can be positive ones. You can make new friends and connect with others who share your same interests.
Grill Accessory Guide: Dress Up Your Grill And Your Feast With Accessories!
As important as the grill itself, are the accessories that go with it! Even the most experienced barbeque pros are nothing without their special accompaniments. Feel like a rotisserie meal tonight with friends? How about some ribs slow cooked on a Rib Rack? No problem. Check out our wide selection of accessories ranging from tool sets to thermometers. With these great pieces, you can feel like a grill pro in your very own backyard!
Rotisseries : Rotisseries are by far the most popular accessory among grilling enthusiasts. Rotisseries have been around since the dawn of time. The reason they are so popular among BBQ crowds is because they create tender, succulent meat every time. The meat is roasted, not grilled but it is just as healthy. There are two basic kinds of rotisseries: the rotisserie used over an outdoor grill and the freestanding indoor rotisserie. They are made up of 3 basic componenets which include a spit / rod to place the meat on that rotates it, a motor to turn the rod and a heat source. This source is typically either charcoal, gas or electric. The price for a rotisserie ranges from about $39 for the most basic to $705 for higher end models.
Grilling Tool Sets : A quality tool set can be an essential element to your grilling experience. Larger grill sets contain from 5-18 pieces. The basic tools included in all grill tool sets are the fork, spatula, tongs and grill brush. Other popular grilling tools are tongs for flipping food and moving coals or grates, multiple brushes for basting and cleaning, skewers for shish kebabs and a much needed thermometer to check the internal temp of your food to make sure it is done just right. Prices for tool sets range from $20-$218.
Rib Racks : Rib racks are a great, convenient accessory for creating exceptionally delicious ribs or poultry any time. It can be difficult to cook many ribs at one time simply by laying them on the grill. With a good steel rib rack, just slide the ribs in to their spot and start grilling. It is recommended by the pros to smoke ribs for the most tender outcome, yet grilling is a great option also. Just make sure you set aside a few hours for them to become moist and delicous!
Side Burners : Contemplating whether or not you could use an extra Burner? Maybe a side burner for warming up side dishes while your main course is cooking? Or perhaps you will just feel secure in knowing you have an extra on hand incase a burner goes out and your guests are wating. Whatever your situation, we have many burners to choose from. Before purchasing an extra, make sure to locate your grill's make and model and purchase accordingly.
Fun Stuff : Grill Accessories are the best way to dress up your meal. While not all are deemed completely essential, they sure are handy and fun to have around.
