Whenever I hear or see a telegraph message (in old movies and such) it looks really WEIRD WHY STOP DONT GET STOP
For instance, why no lowercase? (or why not all lowercase, which would be slightly easier to read?) Why use the psychopathic/shouting STOP instead of a period? It should be much easier to telegraph a single period than STOP. Or at least take up less room. evenwithoutpunctuationonecouldread so why bother at all with STOP and other stuff?
