That's a great point! I havn't been criticized, but I've seen some mean comments from uberusers, and I thought 'And how, exactly, did they get all of that rep?'

Thank you for pointing this out!

Thanks for the reminder. I think we all forget sometimes that we have to be extra carefeul when people can't hear our tone of voice or see our facial expression.

Ah, very good point, and well written(=
But sometimes I think newer users need to think of tone when they read posts, especially if it is a Uberuser. A little missunderstanding can go a long long way

Okay, what is the difference between "criticizing people's ideas (even lightly and well-intentionally pointing out flaws)" and "That's a good idea, but..." or, "Thanks for reminding us, but..." ?

I also think that everyone, new or not, should realize that writing does not show facial expressions, body language, or overall tone -- mainly so they don't take things so personal, because in each discussion it is just that, with various opinions.

I've seen a post where everyone was agreeing to disagree, but putting out all the differences {from their own experiences and such} and there always seems to be 1 or 2 who have to take every comment personal, like it's an attack directed at them, just at them, and so forth. It has to go both ways to be interaction, and both parties {or all parties} need to realize that or that's when something gets deleted and all. It's not an attack, it's SUPPOSED to be a discussion {back and forth} on all the views and such.

I've had a complaint from one of these people just because they were making it personal, and what they complained about was that I capped a couple of words here and there for emphasis, claiming I was shouting -- yet others in that section had done the exact same thing but nothing was said to them by the person {or anyone else} about doing that, even though none of us did a whole lot of capping the words so we wouldn't be 'shouting'. That not only is ridiculous but it got everything totally away from the point of the post to begin with.

Someone might say, "It's already in the rules that so and so, and they should already know", but if you make it "Thanks for reminding us, but it's already in the rules and most users should already know. Thanks, anyways!" See how different the tone is, but with the same intentions?

I would flag the rude post. It is not ok for people to try to make other people feel bad, and in my opinion that is the only reason to word something in that manner.

It's always a good idea to be as polite as possible, but how boring would it be if we all had the same views and agreed on everything all the time?!

As some of the members posted above, there is no sound-voice for each post. We have to do our best to keep our text in a "kind" tone. When you do post something, you can expect somem negatives. Nothing is perfect, and the people who post are usually just trying to help you and trying to make your suggustions alittle better.
I do agree however, that sometimes its hard to understand the tone the poster is using, so I see what you mean by your post above.
