Have you ever read a book, novel or scripture without absorbing the tone? An author writes words to project tone which results in feelings. Such feelings can be sadness, despair, happiness, anger, etc...
Reading the words alone without perceiving a sense of tone eliminates the communication aspect of the writings.
Of course what is written here is neither a novel, nor is it scripture, but I hope you see my point.
How about we move on from this "bickering" ? <friendly tone>
