I don't understand people complaining about cursive. Do you never write with your hands? Or how do you write with your hands then? Just block letters? Isn't that super inconvenient?

@trwnh No? Being convenient is it's point. Lets you write without lifting your pen.

@Gargron scratch it out quickly enough and it's not a speed benefit anymore

@trwnh @Gargron But also, ugly and unreadable? Cursive lets you write fairly neat AND fast, is the main appeal.

Not that I use it much anymore, but trying to write legibly in block is sloooooow in comparison.

@WAHa_06x36 @Gargron it's quite loopy and hard to read, as well as hard to write due to the learning curve. i understand the appeal in theory though.

plus nowadays most people don't write enough to want/need to learn cursive. that time investment would go to waste.

@trwnh @Gargron Yeah, the fact that I don’t write much is why I’ve mostly stopped, but I would never want to write an essay in block letters for instance.


@WAHa_06x36 @trwnh In the post-apocalyptic world we, the cursive writers, will have a competetive advantage
