I don't know if you can read minds, but you seem to have a lot of
trouble reading words.

Can you read "it would be nice to be able to write ..."? Can you
understand what it means? Can you understand that it does *not* mean,
"one *should* be able to write ..."?

The really significant question here is why I waste my valuable time
with pedants like you.
