Swearing off email?

I’m considering swearing off email at work. OK, maybe not swearing, but I’m now getting painfully aware of the need for real communication as an alternative to virtual.

The problem is that I keep getting into situations at work where I send a terse email or post a short summary on wiki, and then people rush to wrong conclusions or criticize my work as superficial. To me, it seems to be similar to picking apart arguments out of context.

But it’s getting painful and personal. I am now spending an uncomfortable amount of time each week responding to these emails.
