always feel that someone who can't be bothered with such old-fashioned
niceties probably can't be bothered to be accurate about anything else.
It seems a crime going against the trend, but so long as I understand what
the person is after I don't care if the odd word is misspelt or the grammar is
wrong. It seems churlish to me, and bad etiquette, to moan about an
individual's use of English. My bugbear are the words form and from - my fingers are
constantly getting the O and R in the wrong order and no spelling checker
will pick this up.
And as for a sniffy 'I never read badly written/spelt email' (from more than
one lister) I'm sorry to say I think that's sounding close to arrogance -
and that *does* irritate me.
