As per usual, there has been a fair amount of mis-communication, both real and perceived, here in the recent past.

Most of this seems to stem from the inability of text based messages to communicate subtleties in humour, fun, and emotion in general.

I might suggest, even though they are rather silly, that we all use the various emoticons (:):laugh::waving: etc) in our posts when we are making light, poking fun, or generally fooling around.

No need to get visual when someone is upset, those words and emotions seem to work very well in text.

Peace be among you all.....

you can also use the icons like (where it says "post icons" below) I just did for this message to indicate you're "tone of voice"...

A wink, a thumbs up or thumbs down, a smile, a frown, etc.

Even the bright light bulb... could mean "Hey I have an idea"... or whatever.

Positive breeds more positive or so they say...
