    My method:

    I've decided to just live with it. *shrug*. There can always be differences in what you meant and how it's read; communication is like that. I think I'm quite skilled at conveying my thoughts in writing, but people sometimes still misunderstand me and there's often a lot of thoughts I don't get around to talking about at all (especially on something like a message board, where I often need to make myself focus on one or two things to say or I'll never get around to finishing my message). Sometimes you just have to put something out there. You can always elaborate or clarify later if appropriate.

    Well, others know what I say by my voice and body language and everything.

    Other than that, perhaps take a and slow down your Ne so Ti can better synthesize ideas.

    [EDIT]Both top two suggestions work.
    This helps.

    I highly prioritize delivering a clear message, but I'm sure it confuses some people to see a slightly different post from me a few minutes later--especially when they've already quoted it.
    haha, i do the same thing racing to edit the post before someone hits reply.

    i've never heard of this! it must have been invented for crazy lovestruck people who send "i love you" emails followed 5 minutes later by "i hate you" emails. this feature very kindly will prevent them from doing this: :horor:

    yup, now i'm editing my post:

    on a board i was on a few years back before it died i met several of the posters irl. they were always quite a bit different than i'd imagined them from their posts even with using emoticons. fortunately, they were almost all positive experiences. i have one really close friend from that board that i've been friends with for over 6 years and we've never met due to living in different countries. it is going to be mighty weird when we finally do meet. i have a feeling i'll probably have to revise quite a lot of my mental impression of him.

    I'd imagine that's right.
