I generally don't let my letters touch (aside from letting tt's share their cross, etc). I'm sure the poll-creator's handwriting is both impressive and legible, but to me, connected letters seem like a sin against the concept of legibility.
Have you ever looked at a book, poster, or web pages's font and thought, "Gee, this font is kind of illegible... maybe they should have connected every letter and maybe italicized the whole thing!"?

My handwriting is so sloppy bad that use it for fast notetaking, but when anything is really important I revert to printing disconnected capitals.
Can we get the results of this survey?
