I am (in general, in most aspects of life) an authenticity freak. I would
gladly use "I", and see no objection to using "I" on paper. However, several of
the contributors to this list have said they work on terminals where "I" and
"l" were almost identical. In order to communicate as best as possible with as
much as possible of this list, I have been using "i" -- the dot adds
legibility, and it doesn't conflict with any other letter. (I might add that I
don't find switching between "I" and "i" particularly jarring.)
