A more global lackage of good english than I thought...

R. Craig Hogan, a former university professor who heads an online school for business writing here, received an anguished e-mail message recently from a prospective student.

"i need help," said the message, which was devoid of punctuation. "i am writing a essay on writing i work for this company and my boss want me to help improve the workers writing skills can yall help me with some information thank you"....

Wait, you mean it's not just the occasional idiot anime fan that finds his or her way to me? I've always assume these people who don't use punctuation are 12-13 year old morons...? (Granted, my grasp of grammar and spelling isn't perfect either, but still... I think most people understand me a good 99% of the time.)
