FWIW, it takes me literally 3-4x as long to read your emails as anyone
else's, because you do not punctuate them. My eyes slide right off 3+
line-long sentences with no punctuation.

Because of this, I usually don't bother reading them unless I find I
can't understand later posts without having read yours. I just skip
right past them.

I find a message that's a bit longer, but carefully phrased and properly
punctuated, far far more readable than your writing style.
