>>I have noticed (on a sample of 2 ;-)) that the rudest messages on the

written in this "shorthand".  Is this because the person is naturally rude, or
because he or she is so cross that there is no time to find the Shift key?

I don't get it. You are very concerned about politeness, yet object to
PMFJI. If person A asks a question of person B, person C may have the
correct answer, and posts same, yet apologizes for stepping in. The epitome
of politeness, no?
