I like discussion boards because I have time to think about what I'm going to say, and to edit before I post. Instant Messaging, on the other hand, is second only to the telephone in ways I hate to communicate.

I love email, and frequently use it for chit-chat (my mother and I often email back and forth several times a day). Of course, I did piss off one of my friends by emailing her when my daughter was born instead of calling - but I was exhausted enough; why would I have wanted a phone conversation?

So, so exactly the same way. I love email, I hate IM and loathe with a fiery passion talking on the phone.
