I have always thought that the advantage of the asynchronous communication is the amount of the deliberate effort that comes with it. A letter, for example. It takes some time to write, every thought is being filtered through the action of writing, reading and re-reading to make it as good as possible. To make it as clear as possible and, finally, to take the responsibility for the words committed to paper. The act of writing is very unlike the speech, or rapid clattering of a chat. The things should not go out blurted. This idea seems to be lost on some people. There is this trend to write and post without thinking, sprinkling bold statements for everyone to see. After that the period of fear of the reaction comes. The inability to face the consequences of one's own writing.
I make sure that everything I write is exactly what I want to say, no backsies, no hiding of the head in the sand. Can you say the same?
