Scopers


Don't Take it out of Context


Context...its the difference between laughing at a well intentioned remark and taking offense. I left someone's blog today where what was seemingly a simple explanation of events turned into someone accusing a person close to me of endangering her own children. I can't and wont go into long elaboration about the situation's origin...I will just say that ultimately certain things come down to forethought and respect. Though we may be conveying emotions and ideas through written words...we still need to THINK for ourselves. Before you make a statement that could be taken offensively, do you direct questions to the author to which you're responding to? At least just to insure that you understood? Or do you sound off in assumption? We put "LOL" into sentences when speaking online to indicate a joke, laughter or sarcasm. But, what do you insert when trying not to offend. How do you discern from being attacked or someone's "humble" opinion? So much can go wrong when reading and responding. Miscommunication is an everyday occurrence. It is quite common for people to have a disagreement inside of a blog or chat b/c of a misunderstanding. I just think that if people took the time more often to think before typing...backspace on a sentence and rewrite their reaction...it could keep down a lot of drama and hurt feelings. Its not as if you're talking. I can understand a slip of the tongue...but, when typing you have options such as backspace, delete, and edit...there is no cause for oblivious disregard for the feelings of others.

you are 100% correct...people need to learn to speak before they type....things are lost in translation on the internet!

Peole just don't know how to communicate period. Well, that and the fact that the internet offers some annonimity.

Because of it, some folks don't even place any consideration in offending people.

I've always found that its best to ask questions for clarification before posting your opinion. Sometimes, that question can make the difference.

Exactly, just ask a few questions before sounding off...you'd be surprised what a clearer understanding will do for an educated response.
