Re: Communication Issues between young and elder, alike!
I think sometimes people choose to misinterpret what we are trying to say; either by the spoken or written word.
The responsibility then is to ensure that you have acted innocently and appropriately yourself; review what you are trying to say, think about it, think about it from someone elses perspective, and then, if you are comfortable, post.
i dont think that smily faces and the like make a huge difference either way; as has been previously stated so succinctly, if it reads wrong to you it will read wrong to others.
Personally, text talk drives me insane, but that doesn't mean that its inappropriate for use by people.
A little empathy goes a long way....there shouldn't be a 'generation gap' on here really, we are all interested in the same thing
