I suppose this is because I am not a touch typist. I have to look at the keys in order to type, and am after all just a hunt and peck typist that can do it at about 45 WPM just through experience. I learned it the wrong way first and now cannot learn it the right way. Even when I tried to take typing in high school it was already too late and I could not re-learn it.
With regular live journal entires and newsgroup postings I merely look stupid - when trying to enter programming code the results are far worse - it simply does not work.
I'm not dyslexic - I just can't type.
