Communication over internet and personal relationships. Breaking them, building them.
What if the email server I have sent email just accepts it and does nothing! Neither it forwards it to other end nor it tells me that it could not. What if it just sits there?!
It did and it might still be doing in some corner of the world for someone. Imagine everything in your life depended on one response to that email. And you will wait forever!
Lets not talk about the worst response one can get.
The incompetency or whatever you call it, in writing, testing, maintaining the system would play a role in someones world. And I am not talking about someone losing money and someone gaining. Never even understood the jokes about money anyway.
This is not something new. There were letters, communications sent in all ages which never made it to destination and changed the destiny for many. Even started or stopped wars!!??
On the other hand this age of communication has more effect on the growth and evolution of language itself. The cultural influence through the communication with oversight indeed will definitely have its effect. The influence of cross-cultural spell on the usage of language and on the language itself and on the speaker is immense improvising or diluting the language or both.
