I found this article at the Survivors Tree house site very interesting
There has been a couple discussions on this subject before but I
think this article sums it up pretty good. http://www.survivors-treehouse.net/Conflict%20In%20Cyberspace.htm
I would post it here but its too long
I want to share my own experience with an email from my ex that I read and took it the wrong way, and we did not talk for 5 years after that because of my interpretation of the words in the email.
After 5 years I finally contacted her, she said she had been hoping to hear from me, and we got it all worked out but it was too late to save the relationship. We both created new lives for ourselves and ther was o way to go back and recreate what we once had. Although we had some communications problem prior to the email, the email I took out of context just sealed out fate.
It didn't have to be that way but due to misinterpretation of 1 email we changed our lives without each other.
Sad but true.
