I think it is so true of what Derek said about feelign no emotions in the internet. I feel that you can't have a true response to anything on the internet b/c it's so impersonal. I like what you said about writing in all caps to show anger. The same goes true for instant messenger. Now they have little smily's for you to express what you are feeling. But by no means does that indicate what the persons face is saying. My favorite is when you know someone is mad at you on IM when you don't respond right away, b/c they write to you hello....hello!! The many exclamation points do me in! I think people are just taking for granted the ease IM and the internet give to us.
