Personal Communications Technology: Am I serious?

Quick letter sent to The Independent in response to a couple of letters questioning if I was serious in my note about personal communications technology :

Sirs,

To your correspondents (Letters, 5th Feb.) who ask if I was serious in my assertion that personal communications technology takes social interaction away from being a simian requirement to being optional, I can answer a very honest “yes”.

If it allows me to be left alone by those people who, without a shred of evidence, mistakenly believe they in some way add warmth or life to my existence, then I shall be happy indeed. People like the two in the letters column, for example.
