That looked like fun. Let me try.

uderstand waht eyem saying and only nonfeable brained persons will be able
to decipher my point very funny

Winning an argument with ignorance as your main weapon can be very hard so
yes I agree. It hasn't been working for you so far.:)
No one enjoys reading sloppy messages. Being an English major should make
the task of constructing a clean email message easy compared to other
people. The problem you're running into now is that the lack of punctuation
is nullifying anything you might be trying to say because people don't want
to take the time to understand what you're trying to say because you didn't
take the time to present it in a manner that was easy to read. Below is
your response to Chaoist which I will now respond to;

Problem number one is that these are now your written thoughts that your are
sending to 239 non-digested members and 78 digested members. If you don't
punctuate and capitalize then all of those members will begin to think that
it is a waste of their time to read your thoughts.

Not everyone will find reading a block as practical as you think writing a
block is. You have to write for your audience. Your audience is not 317
English majors so they are not as adept as you might be at reading a block
of text. For a good portion of this list english is a second language and
I'm sure they're having a hell of a time reading your posts.

Right. And your meaning isn't being portrayed because your rhetoric is not
Quality of posts are much more important than quantity of posts.
Please just honestly think about the things I've said. I've got nothing
against you personally. I don't know you. What I do know is that you've
not put enough effort into communicating in a clear manner on this list and
I'm only trying to help you see that you need to change that in order for
the audience you are writing for to understand you or care about what you're
trying to say.
