Actually, I wasn't sure what that was....

I just googled "BFG" and got BF Goodrich, BFG Tech, Big F**king Gun
and Big Friendly Giant, but I'm guessing you meant Big Fat Grin (or
some other F* word :-).

Seriously, though, I try to read email as if it had no tone (unless
the language or emoticons make it abundantly clear) and always, always
take a deep breath before I respond - shot myself in the foot enough
times to remember a few of them when I want to blast off.  I also try
to proof the responses, and frequently delete them so I can wait a
while before I write anything.

But, technically, since we're writing and not speaking, it's all
tongue-in-cheek, isn't it?

I'll let others handle the arguments here - I just try to go with the
flow, and I can read it either way.

I will admit, though, that some of the posts here contain WAY too much
back-data.  Edit, edit, edit!

'nuff said!
