    Maybe if you dont think you are doing this, you should think about some of your comments from another point of view. We all mean well, but sometimes comments read differently.
    And conversely, it's important to remember, in forums etc online, that tone is often determined by the reader. So if you're reading something in a bi+chy tone, and the person who wrote it is very surprised by your response- perhaps you (general you) have misinterpreted the tone. Some people confuse matter of fact and pragmatic with callous or uncaring. We've all done it at some point.

    I agree. Sometimes it's helpful to read the comment back to yourself with a different tone before responding. It can completely change the interpretation of a post.
