I have decided something.
I have tried to do it in the past but gave up. All my emails will now have a greeting and end with my name. The only exceptions will be when an email becomes an immediate reply and is almost like a conversation.
Harder, but I will try, sms will also be like the above.
Not much easier, but with comments on others blogs, if I don't know them well via mutual blogging, I will also write salutations.
And the hardest, if you don't know me well personally or by email or via an ongoing mutual blog connection, and you write abrupt comments, I will ignore you. If I feel offended by your comment, I will not respond. It gives you wide reign as I have never been offended by comments by Andy, RH, Copperwitch, Steph, Jo or Lord Sedgwick and they can be thorough bitches. The difference is I know them well.
We could all do well to take a leaf from this chickie babe's blog and the way she deals with comments.
