According to etiquette expert Peggy Post, times change, but manners, which she defines as a "sensitive awareness of the feelings of others," remain constant. "If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter which fork you use."

That's why etiquette rules that cease serving smooth social interactions eventually cease to exist.
