10 Commandments of Cyber Ethics


As an internet user, are you aware of the 10 Commandments of Cyber Ethics?

Here you go:

  1. Thou shalt not use a computer to harm other peoples.
  2. Thou shalt not interfere with other people’s computer work.
  3. Thou shalt not snoop around in other people’s computer files.
  4. Thou shalt not use a computer to steal.
  5. Thou shalt not use a computer to bear false witness.
  6. Thou shalt not copy or use proprietary software for which you have not paid (without permission).
  7. Thou shalt not use other people’s computer resources without authorization or proper compensation.
  8. Thou shalt not appropriate other people’s intellectual output.
  9. Thou shalt think about the social consequences of the program you are writing or the system you are designing.
  10. Thou shalt always use a computer in ways that ensure consideration and respect for your fellow humans.

Which one have you broken and which did you think wasn’t even a big deal?

We are all guilty of one of this. Especially those of us who use pirated/ cracked Windows Os, Commandment 7 is calling your name. Repent!
Lol, but jokes apart, are you even aware that using a pirated software exposes you to some form of danger?


Nice post. Almost everyone is guilty of 6. It’s expensive to buy every commercial software to get a job done.


True!Informative post!:smiley:


The implication is more expensive than making an actual purchase, I think every digital citizen should embrace the responsibilty that comes with their digital activities and pay for what needs to paid for.
