Subject: RE: BS: lower case posts with no punctuation
Reading and writing have been around much longer than the Internet. If there were something superior about writing without grammar, punctuation, accurate spelling, and capitalization, the professional writers and editors of the world would have discovered that by now, and we would be seeing whole books, magazines, and newspapers being written that way.

"archy and mehitabel" is a good book, and I know at least one poem by e e cummings that I like a lot, but I don't see the world rushing to imitate them, so I don't plan to imitate them either.
