Rude and Presumptous (or not)


Recommended Posts

Generally speaking, the shorter your message, the more you leave to the imagination of the recipient, as that person must fill in the blanks with assumptions. If they have a generally negative outlook on humanity, then they may be likely to understand your message in a darker light, whenever you fail to make your point clear, assuming you didn't actually intend to be rude. I am not suggesting that we drown people in words.


Also, politeness always takes effort. Colloquial internet speak may be quicker to type, but it lacks the clarity needed if one really wishes to convey politeness.


Give people a chance to correct their own mistakes first. It's the least you can do. I think that if you deleted my log as quickly as you told me that I made a mistake, then I would not eagerly seek your caches again.
