[Can't see the] Wood for the trees implies one is not able to get a general or overall understanding of a situation because one is too focussed, worried or caught up on the details. This can also come from making unfounded or unchecked assumptions about a situation, which have no or little evidence base one does not ask appropriate or pertinent questions, or ask question at all... thus leading to distortions in what would have otherwise been a reasonable perspective on the situation.

The logical consequence can be non-sequiturs, which are logical fallacies of reasoning where the conclusions drawn are inaccurate, thus becoming misinformation, or worse, concocted if things are not resolved. All it takes is not asking a reasonable and relevant question, knowing what a reasonable and relevant question is, without getting personal. Resolving things will also not happen without, to some degree, acknowledging and dealing with mistakes made. This applies to all situations, including online.

While there is no timeframe for this stuff, it is nonetheless...relevant in the modern day and age. If nothing else, those of us contributing online can perhaps consider what constitutes a logical fallacy. Understanding these does not have to be perfect, if there was such a state, but it is the intent that matters.
