Do you have children? Please do me a favor and teach them cursive writing and how to use a fountain pen. I know phones and DocuSign are all the rage, but these basic skills should never die out.

@JohnsNotHere Has Docusign been legally tested yet?

@r000t
Not that I'm aware of, but that's the excuse most people go to when I raise this concern. Between cursive and the Oxford comma, I'm willing to die on this hill.

@JohnsNotHere People use Docusign as a reason people "no longer" have to learn to sign their name?

I'm very very very sad now.

@r000t
Yes. I've had HR people say that the signature is dead since everything is electronic now, so physical signaturs aren't as important. I teach part-time and I can see some of my students struggle with their signature. I gave them a fountain pen today to sign with and melted a few brains...

@JohnsNotHere Not sure the fountain pen is 100% necessary, but enough cursive to sign your name should be mandatory to graduate the 5th grade.

@r000t
You're right, it's a personal choice but I feel it does help with positioning and stroke.
