I agree, Lynne,

Sadly, many otherwise normal people become humor impaired on email.  This
is partly because they cannot hear a tone of voice or see a facial
expression if they can see.  Some use those damned emoticons, but they are
both inaccessible mostly and do not really convey anything
significant.  Before we ever take a post seriously, we need three deep
breaths, a piece of good chocolate, a wee dram of the waters of life and
probably a good roll in the hay.
