You know, the internet is a fickle friend.
I've been fairly internet-savy for a few years and it's hard.
You don't see facial expression when these people type, you don't actually know them.
I mean, you FEEL like you know them, you read their blog, you have chatted on message boards, but you don't KNOW them.
Anyway, it's amazing how people get things mis-contstrued or freak out over the littlest things, all from the intra-net. :) It's hard not to, it's happened to me a few times. I take an IM as one way, and the person meant it an entirely different way.
Thank you Al Gore. :)
