    I agree with this 100%. AND would like to add that as the reader of posts (blogs, comments, shared photos, etc…) to remember that what we get from what we're reading is sometimes not at all what the writer was trying to say. Much like texts, when you're not in a verbal conversation with someone it's easy to totally misconstrue the message. And we have a responsibility to try not to overreact. Which is why I sometimes over use smiley faces and emoticons and there is a huge need for a sarcasm font! :) AND (at least for me) it's a learning experience. Sometimes I just have to say I'm sorry, I didn't think it through and make better choices next time round.
