We've all used some type of ackronym to describe our ideas and opinions online, ranging from "IMO" and "IMHO", to "just my .02"  and perhaps a few more choice phrases.  Whether its concerns, feedback, critiques, complaints, rants, diatribes or manifestos, the need to have one's voice heard is a basic human desire.  Some truly great ideas come from this desire to be heard while other times it can lead to disagreements, arguments and the occasional name calling.   Regardless of the outcome, its a necessary part of effective communication and whether it is delivered with tact or abrasive uncut honesty, the inevitable outcome is a renewed perspective on the issue at hand and this often translates into fantastic ideas!

So do not despair if your idea gets barraged with terd bombs because the post has a missing comma or contains a run on sentence or some other poster just thinks it plain ole bring up a valid point and you deserve an answer or explanation at the very least.  So, lets strive for some good communication because I guarantee, it will result in the generation of good ideas!

Hey!, speaking of ideas....I'm wide open to any and all you have for the nefa blog...otherwise you'll continue to read life lesson drivel like this from now on, so bring it...please. top Top > Comments   (6 comments)
