Wired News’ “Sex Drive” columnist Regina Lynn has started a lively discussion with her recent piece, Think Before Pinging Your Ex. Wondering aloud if one should engage in a post-relationship communiqué she writes:

And then when it’s not forthcoming, you have to settle back into the knowledge that you were not actually resuming connection, you just had a moment of nostalgia and affection you couldn’t resist sharing.
Who hasn’t wrestled with the lure of an ex’s blog, or social networking or online dating profile?
