Arguments are ok as long as all sides respect each other and don’t formulate their opinions as if they were The Final Words of the Intergalactic Overlord…
Anyway, returning to the subject of writing, as I’ve said, I do practice writing, I just don’t use the stroke order. And the reason I don’t use the stroke order is because it feels too unnatural to me.
I mean, there are kanji like 寺 which is divided quite logically. Officially it has six strokes - and that’s exactly how many I see there. But then there are kanji like 口 which officially has 3 strokes:
I’m sorry, but I don’t see it. Why not make it four strokes by dividing the second stroke into two? Or why not make first and second stroke into one stroke, so that it would be a two-stroke kanji? There probably is some very logical reason for it, but one might need to go into real depth to find it. As for me, I sometimes write it as a two-stroke kanji and sometimes - as a four stroke-kanji. Which is both wrong and unofficial, but I can only write in a way that feels natural to me. And that’s why I don’t study the stroke order. Maybe someday I will have to, but for now I prefer to decide myself how many strokes to use for a kanji. Btw, here’s an example of my handwriting:
