This is a serious question, not an asshole one.
Do people like you who obviously IM/text message a lot (given your lack of capitilization, punctuation, and use of the ellipsis) use different forms of typing when in professional settings?
I've found that some of my wife's students (high schoolers) will email her as though it is a text message. It does not come accross well and causes her (and me) to not respect the student as much.
Thoughts from you and anyone else?
Also, do you recognize that it is harder to read paragraphs typed it such a manner, or have you gotten used to it and can read it the same?
