History of Netiquette

History of Netiquette From Persian Royalty to 1 Great Internet Society

Now, the history of netiquette is two fold. First, about me David Chiles. Second, where the term came from. Important to realize that the meaning and definition were created for my own personal statement. Next, original definition.

Netiquette (Noun) 1. The social code of network communication. 2. The social and moral code of the internet based on the Golden Rule. 3. A philosophy of effective internet communication that utilizes common conventions as a guide for rules and standards. 

I, David Chiles created netiquette after studying my lineage and heritage. Here, an effort to move society forward with digital transformation according to our beliefs and values. So, working together peacefully with truth and justice.

It’s kind of commercial. Digital marketing and cryptocurrency are my interests beyond netiquette. The social code of the internet.

To clarify, sign of the cross is a symbol associated with my family in the Zoroastrian religion. Basically, the principles of Persian royalty created order through writing (cuneiform). Notably, creators of the Golden Rule and gold standard for monetary policy. Furthermore, the first order to protect the belief in God was written by Cyrus the Great after freeing the Jews.

The Golden Rule of Netiquette

Treat others the way you want to be treated.

David Chiles

Golden rules is part of my story. Also, the first part of the history of netiquette. Created and written by my family. First, raised by Mother’s side of the family. Art Raya was like a father to me. He taught me that we are Persian Royalty. The sign of the cross is actually the sign of our family. One God religions use the same basic story with different characters.

I did a lot of research at different times. Shocked to learn Christianity is deliberately wrong. Most fascinating fact is disinformation was created by Eisenhower who created the internet. Persian Royalty was involved. And so, the story goes.

Recorded history started with us Sumerians. Later, identified as Persians. People who write are called Aryans by Persian royalty. Africans and others who did not write were excluded. Now, we all write.

The Golden Rule is the underlying belief of social interaction. It is freedom. Everyone is free to treat others how they want to be treated. 

The Golden Rule is often called a rule of reciprocity. Reciprocity means that a person exchanges something equally with another. A person who helps someone will receive help.  

Societies form based on this principle. Schools are built on it. People learn from it. The knowledge derived from the Golden Rule created the current world society because all knowledge has been acquired from systems based on its use. The internet is a product of it.  

World society exists based on the Golden Rule. Treat others the way you want to be treated. It has been recorded throughout history as the rule that governs societal actions.  

The Golden Rule is the commonly held belief that binds the principles of netiquette together. It is to, ‘Do unto others as you would have done to you’. In other words, treat others the way you want to be treated. Netiquette rules may not contradict this rule because it is the basis.

Natural Law

In any event, Golden Rule at first. As far as we can tell, Sumerian from caves in Iran. After, Cyrus the Great was the great law giver. Later, Darius the Great created the gold standard. Finally, our rule of reciprocity applies online as a basis for sharing.

On the other side of my family, the surname comes from England. Oldest recording of Chiles is in Hertfordshire. Which is on the road to London. A settlement that dates back 20,000 years. Raya dates back 45,000 to mountains in Iran.


The second part of the history of netiquette is the origins of the word. Netiquette was created by combining the words network and etiquette. Network refers to a computer network. The internet is the largest computer network in the world. Etiquette is a social code. 

A computer network is a collection of computers that can communicate digitally. Networks are computers that share signals. Digital communication consists of electric pulses that represent 1’s and 0’s, binary code, to computers who interpret the machine language and display it on screens. 

Etiquette is a social code of behavior according to conventional standards. The popular way of doing things is the social code. As a result, netiquette is the social code of the internet because the internet is a computer network and etiquette is a social code. 

The internet is a collection of digital signals that computers share. It is a medium of communication.  Netiquette is the social aspect of the digital signals. What we do to and get from the network.  

What we do to the network is build websites for and through communication. Communication through the internet builds websites on every level. It adds more data.  

The rules of netiquette are cultural norms. They are based on the principles of the internet. Principles create conventions. In other words, popular use of the internet creates netiquette rules based on common beliefs. Once a popular rule becomes common knowledge, is taught at a school, it is a principle itself. 

Netiquette rules are the social code of internet society that is displayed by how users interact with information and individuals on the internet. It is a portmanteau, combination of two words, of network and etiquette. It describes the internet because it is the biggest network. The internet is a medium of communication. The rules of netiquette are the culture of communication through it.

Network Etiquette

The history of netiquette socially begins with the internet because netiquette was a word created for its use in the same year the word internet was first used. The internet is a collection of computers that share digital signals in a public domain, a medium of communication. Adherence to cultural conventions emerged when users began to share information.  

History of netiquette began immediately when the internet was created. It is natural. It is the culture of sharing information on the internet because the internet is a medium of communication. Sharing is communication through the medium. This is enabled by the interpretation of digital signals. Programming languages direct digital signals to display information on video screens through the internet. 

The Advanced Research Project Agency began working on the internet in response to the first satellite launch in 1958. The Sputnik satellite was launched in 1957.  Email was a precursor to the modern internet. The software was developed in 1971.  

Freedom, reciprocity, and helping one another are the logical implications. This allows effective communication because of an agreement on the basis of our actions. We can communicate with each other for a desired result. 


History of netiquette in terms of social interaction online. Internet news groups emerged in 1982. The Domain Name addressing system began in 1984. The first web pages were used in 1985. In 2006, NetworkEtiquette.net began publishing netiquette rules. 

Sputnik was the first satellite in space. In response to its launch Dwight D. Eisenhower created the Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA). ARPA was started one year after Sputnik’s launch. It started in 1958. This was an agency within the United States Department of Defense that oversaw the creation of the internet. Dwight D. Eisenhower created the internet.  

The first internet transmission did not take place until 1969. A professor supervised a student attempt a login from a remote computer. The l and o were transmitted. The terminal crashed when the g was input.  

So, the I in internet stands for I. The internet has a single user interface for communicating with others through it. It is a form of communication that is often used alone. Interacting with others and data requires the consideration of others, etiquette.

Netiquette Beginning

Email is where the history of netiquette or the internet actually begins. It is the first application of the internet. Before the internet was called the internet. Software programs were developed to send electronic messages to computers as an alternative to telephony.

The first email program was developed in 1971. It was designed with the @ symbol as the network identifier. This was before domain names existed. 

Internet news groups began in 1982. News groups are user groups of forum software applications. Forums are first generation websites, web 1.0. Participants, users, post articles.  

Forum articles are short stories about various topics from news to humor. The first generation of internet use was simply connecting to a remote computer to download a file to a local computer.  

The word netiquette first appeared on the internet in 1982. It was written in a forum post. Netiquette was written in a post on November 15, 1982. A joke within a humorous article.

Web 2.0 began when pages were first used to connect to each other through hyperlinks in 1985. HTML was created from a computer industry standard, Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) in 1984. The first domain was registered March 15, 1985, Symbolics.com.

This began a new era of internet communication that was more than just information consumption. Web 2.0 includes information production and interactive participation. JavaScript, database access, and templates made dynamic web pages possible. 

The history of netiquette as an appropriate word followed. Started using it during the era of Web 2.0. NetworkEtiquette.net registered the domain and began publishing netiquette rules in 2006. Schools, churches, and Mosques use the rules of netiquette by NetworkEtiquette.net. It is the netiquette standard.

Words appropriate for popular use are first used in education or religion. Netiquette is taught by both. Therefore, netiquette is an appropriate word because it is taught in school and in religious settings.
