I've been following this thread with interest.

I see several people feel e-mail has enhanced/increased their social

But I'm still concerned about how it affects the cocktail party type of
face-to-face social skills. My last boss depended on these skills at
company gatherings to get many things accomplished.

Also, since much face-to-face communicating depends on the nonverbal body
language, can smileys really replace it? Body language really
communicates a lot. I can understand a desire to hide some of that by
using e-mail, but is it a copout?
