in reply to On Online Communication

I manage online comms by:

  • listening
  • not trying to fix blame, as for some situations, it's clear what the problem is
  • not criticising destructively (because then I end up in a vicious cycle known as the "flame war")
  • not trying to convince folks of my own POV (works great for anything where there's no right answer, and no wrong answer)

For channel noise, this is much easier to deal with online than in real life. In real life, I lost count of how many times i've just wanted to yell "STFU!" at the top of my lungs so that I could speak with no interruption, opting instead for waiting until everyone else is done. Online, I can ask my question or (try to) make my point right then, and it can wait in everyone's queue. No response generally means they chose to ignore it or had no comment. Relatively simple.

For PSI::ESP problems, I like to clarify my position if i catch these. It does neither of us any good to have my ramblings mis-perceived.
