ban_sidhe: I feel like I'm surrounded by people who are determined to send a dozen chat messages, texts, or e-mails back and forth rather than pick up the damn phone and have a 30-second conversation.


Fark you Bob! The last time I called you for a "30 second" conversation, I missed lunch as you went off on a tangent about the crazy adventures of your cat, Mr. Bananas.

Never again.

mccallcl: I find that liars and the passive-aggressive prefer text-based communication. Just my observation. Gives them more time to compose disingenuous messages.


Written communication also helps us to remember exactly what you said that we can twist  your words around to use them against you.

So let me get this straight, people don't want anyone to know about their private conversations so they have them over the company network using the company IM that likely logs their conversations?

Sounds like a plan to me.

Did you hear that the iPhone fingerprint sensor has already been hacked? It's pretty hilarious.

cameroncrazy1984: You can just say you're busy and that you'll chat later. It's not that difficult. But then you wouldn't have anything to complain about!


Do IM programs still come with away messages so you can convey your emotional state through pop song lyrics?
