Getting the message across is hard, so imagine if you decided to be nice instead of being frank, the receiver of the message would be lost in translation.
But if you also take into consideration the feelings of the reciever of the message, this would obviously affect your message because you are protecting him/her from possible wounds that might hit him/her.
Writing is hard. So damn hard. If people think that this is such an easy job, well think again because it is not.
Communication gap, misspelled words, misquotations, and other wrong informations are being fed up to us almost everyday. The writer’s task is to deliver the message across clearly –no more, no less. That itself is a difficult objective so in considering your opinion about something you don’t specifically know, be open and think of many angles because, we never know the real story behind those things unless we try it for ourselves.
