Well said Vincenti.
I think that all too often it is hard to convey our tone and feelings in an e-mail. Sometimes, disagreements are easier to resolve over the phone, where tone and feelings are better conveyed.
I know that everyone on our lists wants the same thing, to enjoy the Dream. To make this Dream a reality, we all must work together. The members of Namron and Skorrgardr are family to many of us on these lists. In that vein, we need to remember that sometimes families can have their squabbles, but they always end up coming back together.
YIS to the Dream,

Subject: [SkorragardrVirtualSkald] Good Morning Everyone!
I read some stuff last night after getting back from Winterkingdom
(which was great!) that I think was getting blown way out of proportion
When we are talking on e-mail and stuff it is easy for us to jot out a
quick note that when we write it and send it we are thinking and
interpreting it based on **OUR** point of view and **OUR** frame of mind
at the time. Then we send it and rush out the door to work, walk the
dogs, get to the store, dinner, take care of projects, whatever. Then
the person receiving it reads it and interprets it based on **THEIR**
point of view and **THEIR** frame of mind as they are trying to head out
the door, or maybe they just got home from a really Sh****y day and are
in a bad mood and then they read and respond . . . and thus starts a war
of words or and issue that never should have been.
Always try to assume that the note was poorly written and that you may
not be understanding it the way that it was meant.
Do not ascribe malice to something that can be simple miscommunication.
The people that are on here want the same thing. For the dream to
continue and grow and for everyone to have fun. They may have different
versions of what "fun" means or what this thing is we do should grow in
to but we are all here for good intentions.
If you think someone is being a complete moron or jerk do not continue
to flame on the list. Stop and just say that you are taking it off-line
to discuss it and then CALL them or ask them to CALL you. I find a 5
minute conversation can save days of stupid, hurtful, and misconstrued
If I offend anyone by this email, I am truly sorry and apologize for any
offense given. If something on here sounds hurtful or sounds like it is
against a person ... it was not meant that way, please do not say so on
the list just call me or message me and I will be happy to talk with you
on it. Now it is time for me to run out:-)
