"By requiring employees to use appropriate, businesslike language in all electronic communications, employers can limit their liability risks and improve the overall effectiveness of the organization's e-mail and Internet copy in the process."
-Excerpt from “Writing Effective E-mail,” by Nancy Flynn and Tom Flynn
