Digital Citizen Netiquette is culture of the online community. We are members based on our level of access.
The culture is nice. We help each other. Open source is part of the responsibility to share. Staying away from hoaxes and scams is another aspect. Data protection is cultural.
A Digital Citizen is a person who uses electronics effectively in their daily lives. We use devices to communicate, organize, and assist ourselves.
Among other things these devices include:
Following conventions to build the online community makes us Digital Citizens. There are conceptual and digital requirements.
Ethics and rules are conceptual. Access and accounts are virtual.
Ethics consists of the fundamental beliefs of right and wrong in a society. Netiquette rules are the ethical online conventions we follow. The social code of good people.

Establishing ethics is the basis of the rules. This civilizes us. Netiquette rules establish social standards for electronic communication.
The conventions organize us into a unified civilization. They facilitate effective communication. We agree on the conventions of it.
Given that ethics and conventions are conceptual, internet ethics is consciousness. The knowledge of right and wrong with conventions for doing the right thing.
Knowledge of right and wrong comes from interaction with good people, education, and technical training. Good people have to help each other. Education teaches us principles. Technical training shows us how to use the internet.

The world is becoming digital. Paper documents are disappearing. Electronics are ruling the daily lives of everyone in industrialized nations.
The internet is organizing, educating, and entertaining. It is a brave new world.
Recognition as a part of this society requires ethics online and off. Troll activity is not good digital citizenship. It does not disqualify a person either.
The world is full of people who use Information Technology (IT) with proper netiquette. We have an understanding of right and wrong consciously applied.
