Dignity? It's a mailing list! I believe my diction is always in keeping with the nature of this conversation, and my manners are consistently charming. If we were talking in person, you'd never hear my spelling.
Actually, I spell very well. I never said I could type. Happily, Eric doesn't make it a requirement for membership in this jolly company, although in general he takes it very ill when someone brings it up.
