Do you 'read' the tone of a question before you answer?
There is great talent on Fluther in terms of brain power, as well as great writing skills and grammar.
A thought occurred to me though, are we as great ‘readers’ ’ as we are writers? Do we hear the tone of a question?
Sometimes the writer, such as myself not being so great at it, does not convey the tone very well. In that case as a reader do you consider yourself as a person who can read ‘between’ the lines? As a good writer are you thorough with your own questions but less thorough as a reader? What would be the point then if one talent was strong and the other not?. Would it then be like a two legged stool? Any thoughts appreciated.
