According to the AQs you recently submitted (RI Prelim 2009) here’s what an alarming number of you mistakenly believe manners refers to:
- donating to charity
- helping those in need
- embezzling money
- stealing your friend’s things
- engaging in pre-marital sex
- sexual harrassment
These points have appeared multiple times now, in various AQs. Just to clarify, none of the above are about manners.
There’s a piece in the Oct 31 2011 issue of TIME that does discuss manners, available online here.
