Ah! So that's why!

This article says that people have only a 50% chance of correctly interpreting the tone of an email. It goes on to say that people who read the emails feel 90% sure of their interpretations, and the senders are 80% certain that their reader will understand the email's tone correctly.

I've wondered about this, because I've a friendship go sour when the only communication between us was email. So to avoid similar things in the future, I'm going to pay much closer attention to how I word my emails, posts, and writing in general.
