Meh. It doesn't bother me. I type laying down all the time. If they don't like the way I type they can just not read it.

I must admit I find this attitude confusing. Maybe it's because I'm a communications major and had grammar drilled into me as a kid, but I was taught that how you communicate is a reflection of you, of your education, of your upbringing. Other peoples' perceptions of you are influenced by how well you can communicate - both verbally and in writing.

If our kids were turning in a paper to school filled with misspelled words, improper capitalizations, bad grammar, etc., we would not tell them "if your teacher doesn't like it, they can just not read it." Same with memos I write for work, meeting minutes and reports. If you don't want people to read it, don't write it. If you want people to read it - make it readable.

Good Question. I have no idea. Let me see if i can find out...

Pointless Question of the Week???

I know for me sometimes I have precious few seconds to respond to posts, and if I am going back and editing etc, to make sure I have capitalized, checked spelling etc. I will never get a post in!
