Be careful with online communications. What's missing is gestures, facial expression, vocal inflections and other queues that say “Kidding”, “Laughing”, “Sarcastic”, Nudge-Nudge”. Even emoticons and be misinterpreted as “Angry”, “Hurtful”, “Bummed”, “Spiteful”, “Condescending”, and Hurtful”! Not all text translates the way your type it. If you have to write disclaimers… probably not worth posting!
