    Guilty as Hell. Someone else complained just recently and I was going to make the change and did not. Sidecar Flip I think.

    I'm not much good with computers, and our system at work is old. It and Facebook end my posts when I hit return at the end of a sentence. Work also insists on all capital letters.

    My apologies Roy I'll try to consider your eyes more more often.

    I also like punctuation as it is very hard for me to follow a 600 word sentence because my brain has been trained since I was about 6 years old to pause at punctuation and because of that my brain can't separate your ideas and experiences from your questions so it is hard for me to put together a response without transcribing your entire post onto a cocktail napkin and playing editor in order to understand your point and I think this affliction must also be related to Roy's observation about paragraph discrimination as I often find these two things occurring in the same posts wouldn't you agree I don't need Dickens but simple sentence construction would go a long way IMHO
