I think I'm becoming a snob

I answer email all day long. I make mistakes in my spelling and grammar. Even with a degree in English, I still make mistakes and I don't always catch them. But lately I have found myself frustrated and unwilling to give complete answers to people who type in all caps and/or leave all punctuation out of their query. I understand mis-spelled words and mis-typings, but is there not a simple standard that I can expect the average person to live up to? You are asking for professional help for free. The least you can do is make your question reasonable. Maybe I'm asking too much.
