Name this obscure work-related principle of efficiency?

Looking for the name of a principle, probably named after its originator, who was likely a programmer, that goes something like "When we interact, please assume that I won't be offended by a lack of social niceties, and get right to the point for the sake of efficiency." I feel like it had a stub or some brief mention on Wikipedia, and I remember first encountering the idea in someone's forum signature.
