How much drama in threads is caused by poor writing, poor reading comprehension, or both?
I would say a fair amount. Let's do an experiment. Let's believe people when they say "That is not what I meant."
Let's also try to write and read more carefully, at least for today. :)
ETA good points from posters:
You forgot not reading at all. Many people read the first few sentences of a post and then stop and comment.
I think one of the largest sources of confusion on this site is the poster who responds after reading only the post title.
There's also a vast variety in writing and communication styles because of the large number of people from different parts of the world on here.
