Eagles Are All about Efficiency

From Hyperbole and a Half a decade ago, in "Alot Is Better than You at Everything":

... If I come across a person who seems to completely ignore the existence of apostrophes and capital letters and types things like "im an eagle and im typing with my talons, so dont make fun of me cuz this is hard," I like to imagine that they actually are an eagle typing with their talons. It would be a hassle if you had to hop in the air and use your feet to karate-chop two keys simultaneously every time you wanted to use the shift key to make a capital letter. Also, eagles lack manual dexterity, so I can understand why they'd want to leave out apostrophes. Eagles are all about efficiency.

... in other words, Be Tolerant of others, assume positive intent, avoid the Fundamental Attribution Error, and remember that there's likely far more going on than meets the eye ...
