Hi buddies, I gotta question for ya:

Cursive or non-cursive?
Do you have a preference?
Is there anyone who didn't learn cursive?

Cursive was adamantly forced on me in grade school with claims that "It will be the
:hacker_f: :hacker_u: :hacker_t: :hacker_u: :hacker_r: :hacker_e:
and it was expected in the Real World!"

After all that gatekeeping, it was never seen again.

i don't write traditional cursive but my shorthand feels like trash cursive. but I've also been wondering why cursive hasnt carried over digitally (outside a few fonts) like how arabic (a cursive script were letters are shaped differently depending on placement in a word (initial, middle, end, isolated) works with our software but not the cursive Latin alphabet
