It is strange that sometimes having a conversation on the internet isn’t quite what it would be in a real life, face-to-face discussion. It is easy to hide behind the keyboard and say things one might not normally say. I try to get myself to imagine the person I am talking to sitting in front of me, which really helps to say constructive things instead of just meanly criticizing them. I’ve had to do this with Randy Thomas at Exodus and with Mark at Chesterstreet. But when I forget to do that, that is when things go downhill quickly. This is what has happened in the last couple of days with my conversations with Deb. Deb and I have always had a good e-relationship with each other. It is rare, but we have sent emails back and forth to each other and they have always been pleasant. But that took a nose-dive the other day. Luckily both of us have seen that that is not a good way to respond to each other, especially when we are both on the same side of things. We still differ, but that’s o.k. Even Doug and I differ on some things, and we have been together for over 15 years. It would be very boring if we all agreed with each other on everything! But when we differ, we should be able to do that in a respectful way. I didn’t hold up my end of the bargain, and for that I am sorry.
