No Jasen, I’m not at all surprised that this discussion is taking place on this list. This is a very very respectful list. We have over the years developed a set of norms for posting to this list. And people seem to follow them both ol’ timers and newbies. And it’s moderated. Altho’ Fred doesn’t have much to do in this regard because we ARE so respectful. What I was hearing is what is the “best” medium for handling issues when they erupt in serious conflict. I don’t think it’s healthy to flame a neighbor or anyone in person or on email. The challenge is that on email there is more chance for misunderstanding because the social cues are not available. After reading this thread I realized I actually, don’t have ANY objection to issues being discussed on email. The concern I have is the ease w/ which people morph into flaming. It’s like striking a match. And then people bring that “event” into other events in the community. Or worse … flame on email and then be very respectful F2F. Like nothing transpired. Nice in person and harsh on email. Doesn’t work for me. I think Sharon hit the nail in her most recent posting: a solid, well thought out and USED conflict resolution process would go a long, long way to reducing stress in our communities.
