Kevin, I just tried to add something to your list, but got hard time to differentiate between communication constraints and communication blockers.

Time zone: With my current project, my consultant's location is Toronto (EST) and my location is Yellowknife (MST). For web conferences and trouble shooting, I always need to consider time difference-due to which sometimes things get delayed.

Not easy to use technology: When I go for highway inspection, I use to carry satellite phone, due to non availability of cellular net works. The satellite technology is some times annoying, cause I need to stop when driving and setup antenna otherwise lots of noise.

Those are all Communication Blockers, not constraints. I would add distance too.

Lack of transparency is one of the key factors in causing communication dispute.
Verbal communication.
Unnecessary information that decrease the importance of effective information
Layout of information. I remember that a famous contractor had added some options in its proposal in different unrelated subjects and had notified that execution some parts of project under extra phase or agreement will be done. .
