NOW I UNDERSTAND WHAT THE PROBLEM IS
You're a writer
Now just quickly, i agree with you that there is tone in words even though that tone is not comprised of Frequency as is the case with Audible words
but that aside...
i think the problem is this
Look... You're a writer, i'm an I.T. Engineer ok
When a person says to me "Martin, my TV is BROKEN"
then i get there and the problem is , it doesn't power up
well. it's not BROKEN (Broken would mean physical damage, cracked screen, Cracked Bezel etc)
or when they say it has no power
and i get there and there is a stand by red light
(well, it does have power to it, it's just on it's standby circuit and isn't switching to the primary circuit so it can come ON)
you see, our jobs affect the way we perceive things whether we like it or not
in your case
You're a writer so you see the word WEASEL and you picture a weasel in your head and you apply the behaviour of a weasel to that and then you picture how dirty a weasel is and how dishonest a weasel is and then you assume that i also pictured a weasel and that i have INTENDED to slur your good name with that behaviour and filth of a weasel
NO MY GOOD SIR , that is not what i did , nor inteded to do
ok, Stop being a writer for a second and be a normal person for 5 minutes and try and understand me.. ok
now when you said this...
i didn' take it offensively, with or without the emoji, because i have UNDERSTANDING towards you.
now if i meant you illwill, would i really be showing understanding.. ANSWER . NO
and now i understand why you whipped out that brush hehe
it makes sense now
when i read that , i said to myself "What ?? what is this guy, a poet or something?, does he go under the balcony's of fair maiden's and reads them poems in the middle of the night to woo then " hehe
Mate, i was just giving you a heads up ok
i was just being comical
that's my nature, i like to muck around , i believe that life is not too serious and we should not take it as such
so.. try to understand that the way you thought i meant it , is not the way i meant it
