It was my impression ...

I thought and think that starting sentences with upper case letters and
writting upper case I does not matter. That is a reader used to a always
lower case text reading a lower case text is not slower or worse at
understanding it than one who is used to proper english, reading proper
english IMHO.
What i have underestimated were the problems people had with it, who
were used to reading "mixed case english".

I agree that some people seem to have problems with reading pure lowercase
text. And iam trying to avoid writing that since people made that clear.

this should improve my statistic ;)
(yes its copy and pasted)

btw IIRC, most people have little problem reading text with the letters of
words randomly shuffled within words as long as the first and last of each
word are ok.

So iam supprised you notice it at all if i write awnser. :)
Maybe your font is too big or your eyes are too good.
