One thing I always forget online is that people don’t always mean what they say or rather that they didn’t mean to say what we thought they said when they wrote something :p This all goes back to my rant/outburst a Unfortunately, that’s the problem with online communication – and hence the reason for me peppering my writing with an overabundance of emoticons <vbg> – it’s really easy to misinterpret the tone of somebody’s writing because there really is no tone of voice to go by … Now I really feel bad because this particular person seems to have been pretty badly affected by all this and while he certainly should have watched what he wrote, I hate it when somebody is hurt by what passes for life online … I’ve written to him but … I don’t know, sometimes it’s so darn complicated :-(
