Don't be sorry; you were right the first time. The e e cummings / bell hooks / netd00dz approach to writing is atrocious. My opinion is that the spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and spacing conventions in English must have come about for a reason. I'm guessing it had something to do with readability. the new net n texting wayz r 2 die 4 if u r a lazy typist but omg their readability sux. It's more considerate to the reader to make your writing as clear and readable as you can. It's also good practice, for those times when you have to write correctly, to ... write correctly. And how can you expect to master a foreign language, if you're not willing to master your own? ttfn
