But, I do wish that there some features that we could agree on -- like how to refer to a 3rd person singular without choosing a gender ("That's all he/she wrote"). Capital "I" for 1st person, maybe we could use capital "U" for 2nd person, and capital "E" for 3rd, at least non gender 3rd.
The "E" suggestion was made long ago -- never got much traction. But with texting, maybe it could. "U" is making inroads.
Spelling is a modern invention; a book published circa 1770 was the first to suggest that words should be spelled one way, and one way only. But language doesn't stand still; it's constantly shifting.
Digital communications, such as texting and instant messaging have once again morphed language, this time into an alphanumeric jumble. Yet everyone still gets the point.
There has to be some strong viewpoints out there, on both sides of the argument. Have at it in the comments.
