The secret cause of flame wars

http://www.wired.com/news/technology...tw=wn_index_10

According to a study (here we go...) 90% of people believe they correctly understand the intent of comments made in electronic messages, while they are actually right only 50% of the time...about the odds of random chance.

Guess that puts you off the hook Justin...

A rhino in a thong...now that's scary...funny, but scary. Of course, I don't know CFB either.
