Readers Conclude: Cheers To End Email Is Fine

Signing off an email with ‘cheers’ might be too “mock British” for our US counterparts, but the consensus amongst Lifehacker readers is that it’s perfectly acceptable on this side of the Pacific.

Our post earlier this week on inappropriate email sign-offs contained some useful pointers, but was also a reminder that communications norms vary widely between countries. While the Washington Post suggested that “cheers” was too “mock Brit”, readers agreed that this didn’t apply in Australia — though most people felt that it should be reserved for friends and people you actually know, rather than being used all the time. (I personally use “Cheers” on everything except very formal business email.)
