Clever and very funny! You have a writing style much like my own, to the point and laced with a little bit of humor. Well written and said, thank you for saying what most of users are shouting at the monitor when reading a post or two.

I thought sarcasm WAS an official language. Thanks for bursting YET ANOTHER bubble Jax... Evil or Very Mad

Sarcasm? Wasn't that the language with the many Ooohs and Aaahs? Or was that another '...asm'? Laughing

Human societies are like chain mail.

A chain is of use, but will break at the weakest link.
A weak weave will have the need to replace weak links.
A strong weave will survive even with weak links included.

If the subject didn't say it enough, I get corrected a lot at home...I love the post you made but there were parts of it that to me seemed a bit condescending.

This brings to my attention another important point that Blaise touched on with the last paragraph of his article: keeping your tone from being misunderstood.

I understand there is a fine line between intent and perception, but it is rare for people to actually be on a forum and not know what a sentence is, how to capitalize the first word, or referring to the line after a paragraph as commemorating the conclusion of a point.

Remembering this, it's important to realize that people speak differently, so I feel that so long as someone is easily understood, we don't have to follow a proper lockstep script...
... and yes, I also work at a call center. I never knew I'd be so surrounded with Linguistic Correctness. Laughing

If there are many sad stories, share it with the people you trust. Sharing helps people get closer together and you also relieve some of that sadness.
