Yeh! Absolutely!
I've heard there are three types of digital citizens.
1) One who is a good digital citizen as well as an analog citizen, which means a person who can use modern technology thoughtfully without disturbing anyone.
2) One who is a bad digital citizen who can't think carefully about what s/he is saying and doing online.
3) One who is a neutral user, and doesn't really think the information online is trustworthy.

The problems is many of us believe that we are NOT bad digital citizens! :)

I think I am a good digital citizen, I am mostly in the A Answers. Sometimes information looks reliable and don´t need readers to be insecure about what they are reading, but it can depend from person to person if they believe a certain site is trustworthy or not to have valid information.
