Thanks for attempting to sanely punctuate again :)

Now, can you try to climb to the next stage and revive the apostrophe
again?  I don't care how you write mails at all, but leaving out
apostrophes makes a text look unprofessional and careless.  I know that
"its" vs. "it's" is a common source of mistakes, but the others, like
"dont" vs. "don't" should be easy to avoid.

As an alternative, avoiding short forms altogether in (formal) written
texts is likely to be a good idea.  IMO it's slightly better style to
"don't" etc. to "do not".
