Do you inadvertantly send rude emails/messages?

Explained by Will_Janitor...

Not being able to see a person's facial expressions or the tone in their voice makes it easy to misinterpret their messages pretty easily. I see a lot of this or here and many times it turns into fights and hurt feelings. If we are only communicating by the written/typed word we need to take care of the way we say things if we want our communications to be received as we intend. People are going to argue on occasion, but there is no sense in arguing over miscommunication. As always, JMHO :)

People read e mail's/messages and make it what they think it means. I notice on here (Including myself) that people don't ask clarification on comments and automatically assume the worse. By the time either realizes it's a miscommunication it's too late.

I agree that it is difficult sometimes to properly interpret someone's words without the benefit of facial expressions or body language. However, I've also discovered that sometimes, no matter how nicely something is written, the person on the other end is offended because they're looking for the worst interpretation, not the nicest.

That's true. It works both ways. :)

Some people never know when I'm being serious or just joking around.... and I try not to hurt anyone's feelings, but without seeing one's face, things do get taken out of context.

Not often, but I have been misinterpreted a time or two along the way.

I guess... "Shove it down your pie hole", could be misinterpreted..
