Do you feel that Fluther has improved your online writing skills?
Recently, I participated in a “virtual discussion” as part of one of my classes. I felt that there was a huge difference between my classmate’s paragraphs and those I see on Fluther. For instance, several people wrote small paragraphs with poor use of line breaks. Their arguments didn’t seem very well organized. There were also txtspeak-style spelling/grammar/capitalization mistakes.
Personally, I feel that my online writing skills have greatly improved due to extended practice. A long time ago on Fluther, I used to write in very small paragraphs. I once apologized for a “wall of text” which was probably smaller than the details section of this question. Now, I tend to write in much larger paragraphs, full of details and explanation (without txtspeak). Also, it is not unusual for me to spend at least 15–20 minutes writing an answer.
