I can read it but it requires more effort than usual.

For me, comprehensibility is the main aim but the issue is that
different people find different, non-standard things difficult to
comprehend. If one adheres to the standard, so to speak, then at least
people have a reference point for trying to understand.

In general, I find Michael quite comprehensible but the (past) lack of
punctuation and capital letters made it difficult to see where a new
sentence started. I remember a couple of occasions where I had to
backtrack half a sentence because I'd realised it was a new sentence.
I'm glad you now appreciate the need for the improvement and your
effort is indeed appreciated also.
