    Default Greetings! I would love you gain some advice from you!

    Hey everyone! I'm a business student pursuing my bachelor's degree. For my Communication, Technology, and Society class, I need to gain some insight on online chatting. If you could help me out and let me know what you like best about online chatting, as well as some downfalls of virtual communication! Thanks so much!

    1. Since you're a business major, I'm going to give you some valuable business advice.

    If you tried to do a business deal with me, and your basic English and grammar was only half as bad as what you've constructed in this post, I'd never even return your first email, and I'd never even give you the first meeting.

    And if you were applying for a job... I'd throw your resume right in the trash if you didn't have perfect grammar.

    If you write and speak intelligently, people will trust you.

    The business world is cold, hard, and difficult... and nobody is going to give you a second chance at anything.
    Get ready for that.
    That's my advice.

    Hello Micaela_Bethel, welcome to Christian Chat I hope you enjoy your time with us!



    One downfall with online chatting is the lack of body language and
    tone of voice cues that are present in face to face or telephone
    conversations. People are not always sure of where you are coming
    from when those cues are void, so it can take extra effort to get your
    point across without being misunderstood. Also, people read into
    what is said, and often respond to things you have not even implied.
    Then they talk to you as if you said or meant something they have
    imagined, instead of dealing with what was actually said. A third
    issue is the anonymity factor, for two reasons: people will say things
    online that they would not say in person, and two, people can pose
    as anyone just to amuse themselves, or get their wicked jollies. The
    digital age we live in has made it so much easier for people to sin.
    Children are being exposed to materials they should not be.

    A positive is that I do not have to go anywhere to share with others
    and be inspired by them, though I do think it is very important to
    still have face time with people who know me and accept me for who
    I am. Another positive is that there is so much information readily
    available to use as sources when researching to give answers. Having
    so much more information and choices , discernment becomes
    paramount in order to distinguish between the true and false.

    Don't be shy There are many forums to post in God bless you




    Embrace the Grace and Rejoice in His Everlasting Mercy and Love

    That's a little harsh, Max. I know I don't have the greatest grammar in the world and wonder if I am taken seriously

    I was being harsh on purpose.

    I was giving serious business advice to someone pursuing a business major in a cold, hard world that is already full of business majors that can't find jobs.


    renewed_hope,
    you're an accountant. Nobody cares if you begin a conditional sentence and omit the consequent.

    And disarming people with nonsense is a very astute business skill.

    You've learned well.

    I'm going to have to nail you to the wall on this one. Other than needing a comma after the word, "could", there doesn't seem to be a thing wrong with her post.

    What, specifically, do you think is bad? (It certainly can't be the fact that you underlined a perfectly correctly spelled and applied word, "insight.")

    Let's put this whole thing in order.

    1. She didn't come here for fellowship, or to be part of the community, or to join in our discussions, or to learn about the Bible.

    2. She came here for a very specific reason, which is quite outside of the purpose of this forum.

    3. She came here, as a business major, to do research for a college paper.

    4. Since she came here only to do college work on her major, so I gave her advice on her major... advice which I thought was entirely appropriate.

    5. If you can't find the problems in her post, you need to look closer. It's an absolute horror. I can pick it apart later; but surely you could sort it out yourself.

    6. If we're all chatting and socializing, I NEVER say a word about anyone's spelling or grammar. It's rude and inappropriate.

    But that isn't the context here.
    She didn't come here to chat, socialize, fellowship, discuss spiritual things, or be part of the community...
    she came here to work on her business major.

    So I talked to her about that.

    I think it's appropriate to tell someone the business world is going to kick you in the face if you can't even compose a decent sentence.

    I think explaining that to someone, directly, is a kindness.
    Hopefully, if someone will talk straight to her, she can take steps to correct the problems.

    For starters, the conversations on this site are with real flesh and blood people and not virtual. The downfall is that you have to be careful when reading as you may get the wrong impression or jump to the wrong conclusion. This can be avoided if you take the time to really get to know the members, who they are and what they're about. Regardless, I hope that this site is helpful to you in your studies. I certainly believe that you will find it to be educational and if you open your heart spiritually edifying as well. Glad to have you join in on the real conversations that take place here, especially in the forums. Welcome to CC.

    Is a consequent like a consonant?

    Say, being an accountant is what it takes to get a conditional sentence?

    Wonder what the DA says abou that...

    You have identified the problem.

    This whole forum has a general misunderstanding of cinnamon.

    If there were better cooks on the forum, we'd all be busy eating, and nobody would have time to come here and argue.
