Subject: RE: BS: Jim Carroll should stay
So how many people here are dyslexic, Acme? I've had my blocks of texts complained about many times but never on those grounds. I've just asked Mrs Steve about this: she was a special needs teacher for many years and the SENCO at a junior school for a lot of those years. She doesn't regard large blocks of text as a particular impediment for people with dyslexia, suggesting that the only real problem arising from it could be confusion due to losing one's place. If mudcat were a sanctuary for dyslexia-sufferers I'd behave differently. In the meantime, I don't mind being criticised for bad grammar or ambiguous sentence construction, etc., but I can't make allowances for everybody, and I'm not going to be indulging in tabloid-style writing any time soon. Yours unapologetically.
