What do you think, is using a text message (or email) to cancel plans okay or not? After reading this in the NYTimes, it's a definite "no" to rely on text messaging and email as a way to consistently excuse yourself from obligations. It's probably okay to cancel plans at least an hour ahead of time via text, but not so much if you abuse e-messaging to break plans at the last minute. Many people use electronic communication as a shield, and do things they would never dream of doing over the phone or in person. If you wouldn't say it to someone's face, most definitely do not text it.
