I tend to judge people based on their spelling, grammar and punctuation. I doubt that I'm the only one who does this.


Unfortunately you did not use the Oxford comma. Try not to abrade your knuckles on the floor on the way out.

Sure , I make grammar grammatical errors , too as well. Everyone does. At least I try to make the effort to proof-read and edit my own work before making myself appear like a juvenile.

I'm sorry, but "feeling breathless" reading badly punctuated email does not even compare to the breathlessness of "Episode 18 - Penelope" from Ulysses.

Reading "Penelope" is like falling rapidly down hill tumbling over and over and over inside a barrel or truck tire unable to stop for farking miles and *never* being able to catch your breath while another part of you is simultaneously skydiving naked from the edge of space without an oxygen mask and when you hit atmosphere the wind whips around your dangly bits oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes.

I was taught never to use an exclamation point when writing, unless it's a direct quote. Therefore, I write like Stephen Wright speaks. You are now reading this post in his voice.
