We'd love your feedback on the Charter. The main conversations are happening here and on our Facebook page.
Here are some comments on the original draft:

YES YES YES! - Cindy Gallop

Perfect! - Arnold Myers

So, it's not just me? - Toma Rusk

Great idea mate, this would make my life considerably less stressful, especially considering I have to work tomorrow (Saturday here in Oz) just to clear the 839 emails and counting that have gotten the better of me. - Nathan Frick

The average Corporate user sends and receives 110 emails a day! - @davidchris

The Charter for Compression? @REMOrandom

I think I like this but I'll get back to you after I get done reading my emails - Brent Muth

Treat e-mails in much the same way was we did letters, in the 'olden days'. I mean, how many of us, the minute a letter dropped onto our doormat (or desk), stopped and IMMEDIATELY began composing a response? - Claire

The EOM and NNTR tags are genius - Eckie

Short is good. Too short is not. Anticipate questions and answer them. Use whole words (but not unnecessary ones). Be concise and courteous, but not abrupt. Please and thank you are not optional. - David

A pet peeve of mine are signatures that are five times longer than the message itself....Perhaps the world needs a more universal system of short-form legalese - Jerry

Since when did having a job mean having to be available 24/7 to anyone? Let your family, friends, co-workers know that you are not chained to your computer, or your BlackBerry/iPhone (but don't get me started on cell phone etiquette . . . ). It really is okay to just shut down and have some real face-to-face time with people every day. - Mary Ann

Another rule to consider: pick up the phone - Phoebe


Many thanks to these and others who responded to the draft version of the Charter.
