>Perhaps some don't intend to sound as aggressive or >negative or whatever. Email is a pretty shallow communication medium. I agree and have learned not to react so much to the style but only comment on the info/facts etc. However, on other lists some people seem to hate my tone no matter what I say. I think my tone, I assume all our tones, change with our mood at the time. We should be forgiving of moods and reactions, perhaps, we're only human.

There are those of us who appreciate your participation. Please don't be one to flee. Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that the subtle conversation cues are lost in email. Perhaps some don't intend to sound as aggressive or negative or whatever. Email is a pretty shallow communication medium.
