The following excerpt from an article titled "Digital Ethics" provides information and explains ideas related to modern online ethics:

"One of the most immediate reasons why digital ethics are important is because how we present, indeed construct our persona(s) affects the way in which our communication and intentions will be received. The notion that individual ethics impact our arguments is nothing new. Much of how we understand and categorize argumentation today stems from Aristotle’s “appeals," which are generally understood as the means of persuasion — how we support our arguments for specific audiences."
