    It could do with a capital letter at the start and a period at the end.

    If you can persuade him to do this, you're a MUCH better persuader than the rest of us!

    Thanks a lot. I know teachers have a sincere interest in making us, students, write and speak correctly. I apologize for not having enough energy at the end of the day to use capital letters. The problem is that I work with computers all day long and, at night, I am a little bit exhausted of seeing a keyboard in front of me.
    Thanks again.

    I have become used to your typing - even though it irritates constantly when we are trying to encourage new people to follow the rules. Don't take it too personally We are not getting at you!
