My wife always reminds me and my four girls that communication does not have to be confrontation. I love the idea of a conversation for that is how relationships are developed. The difficulty in conversations that happen in writing is that tone is often misunderstood or mistaken and then that sets up additional confrontations. For me personally I would love to see some structure developed in our world as the medium evolves for lengthy written comments that imply tone like music has instructions for the musician (forte, mezzo forte and so forth). I have followed this conversation and am glad that you have brought it up again a with the analysis. We need to keep conversations and communication like this going, however difficult they might become because that is how we will all get through them together.
