    You could at least spell writing the write way.

  14. Effective writting???

    Not all that effective.

    As with most errors, it distracts from the point.
     
  15. I’m still trying to see a point from which I can be distracted.

  16. what bugs me is when people write like this they do not use punctuation or capitol letters i find i must sound out some of these statements when i do i sound illiterate

    The Other One Is When People Capitalize Every Letter In A Sentence. It Takes So Much Extra Effort, I Cannot Imagine Doing It Any Longer Than This.

    I have used the question mark in the wrong context I suppose. Something like: This punctiation biz is a PITA?
    In this case the meaning of the question mark would be "Isn't it". See how I did that? Sometimes you just need a decoder ring. OTOH, as we age we really don't care. Or is it that we really don't think that well any more, what comes out of our brain goes into type and there aint nothing we can do about it (or want to do about it).

  20. Yes!

    And as I see it, a significant amount of “pore writting” is coming from the younger crowd. If that is the case, what will things look like when they get old and no longer care?

    As I have aged, I have become more aware of my spelling, grammar and punctuation. I make more of an effort to be correct now, than I did twenty or thirty years ago.
