Don't send the wrong message.

"Studies show e-mail messages are interpreted incorrectly 50% of the time. ToneCheck™ is an e-mail plug-in that flags sentences with words or phrases that may convey unintended emotion or tone, then helps you re-write them. Just like Spell Check… but for Tone."

"The wrong tone can turn-off customers, tick people off, cause you to lose sales. ToneCheck™ helps people write better and prevent (sic*) them from saying stupid things."

Free plug-in for MS Outlook. I just wish they made one for message boards.

* Seems their web site could use a tense checker.

Thanks for the link. Posters can use the service to correct and improve their board personalities. Simply type your post in an email, send it to yourself and the ToneCheck will suggest corrects to your script. The rest is simple: cut 'n paste to a forum thread. Folks who don't like you will soon gain a new respect and may invite you out for dinner.
