And yes, knowing Danielle she didn't mean it that way (I have a hard time believing that )
I feel like I'm beating this to death, but I wanted to point out that the parenthetical remark was meant to clarify that I don't think she meant anything negative.
After rereading it - with your comments - I got the impression you thought it was a touch of sarcasm ...
... but in my opinion we have all become oversensitive about too many things. The least little thing seems to offend--it matters not what you say, someone will take issue with it. Sometimes it's difficult to express one's self honestly for fear of saying the wrong thing
I think that the point is that people keep communicating. Just because somebody takes issue with something another says doesn't mean that that's a negative thing. You have to be free to speak your mind and discuss the matter at hand. And that includes telling people you don't like what they have just said.
I don't think that has much to do with being "oversensitive".
LOL Personally I'm more likely to just be opinionated, which may result in much the same thing
What is apparent is that certain mediums are prone to miscommunications. Email and discussion boards are prime examples. You can't tell sometimes what people's tone of voice is, and you can't read any facial expressions or body language.
I think that in face to face discussions with people you tend to immediatly clear up any questions. You also have immediate resolution of any questions you have. Whereas in the electronic world of today people have time to sit and stew and dig nice trenches for themselves
Sooo, time to get back to ancient egypt?
Heard any good stories about tombs, temples or pyramids lately?
