Totally agree, but these days people are so careless with words and saying what they truly mean. Language is taken for granted these days and the sender is no longer resposible for being clear and precise. The blame is focused on the receiver of a message if not properly understood.IMO... no, it doesn't. The way you have it worded (as a statement rather than a question) seems to me is just begging for what this thread has turned into. Since no tone can be inflected in typed words everything you write is open to misinterpretation. Had you phrased it as a question I doubt that you would have gotten the same responses we're seeing here now.
