You should know your audience. In case of texts, if your message is concerned of limited number of people, send it to private mailboxes. People may not need to know about event if it is unrelated to them. Ask for permission before you forward or copy others message or content.

We should follow style of writing that is friendly, appealing and logical. The writing having clear heading helps user find what they want.
