  •  I think it is often a communication problem. (4+ / 0-)

    When people disagree there is often a tendency to assume the worst of each other and to take the most negative interpretation of every comment.  I've been on both sides of that.

    Written discourse is difficult because you don't have the benefit of tone, voice inflection, facial expression or body language. It would be interesting to see what would happen if everyone took every comment in the most positive light.  Easier said than done, I suppose.
