You're PC? Sorry bout that ducking in anticipation - Gee, aren't you just chah sweetest thing I ever saw gag. A Dying Art? This article is offered for CE credit. for information. In part, this is due to the fact that during a post-hoc reading of a log, you text message chat room at the pace you usually read any written material - which is QUICKLY, but much too quickly to absorb TextTalk. While online, the lag created by people typing and by thousands of miles of busy internet wires forces the conversation into a slower pace.
And so you sit back, read, wait, scan backwards and forwards in the dialogue something you can't do in ftf conversationand think about what to say next.
To help you out a little bit, I've edited the other log excerpts that appear in this article. Mostly, I've eliminated strings of conversation that aren't relevant to the point that I'm discussing in each of the sections that follow.
