With the added line. If it weren't for that, with my handwriting, people wouldn't tell the difference between either a 7, a 2, a 1, or a z.
And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

Yeah, like '7' except when I see someone else writing theirs with a line through it, then I get envious and change my style.

Why do some people put a line through a 7 anyways?

With the line through it, because my handwriting is like a drunk spider ambling across a page. After handily walking through ink or that simile is useless.

Copying others. Though mathematicians and Frenchmen do it to differentiate between 7s and 1s, I believe.

Yeah, really!

I can understand putting a line through 0's, they might be confused with o's otherwise. But what is someone going to mistake a 7 for?

1, perhaps, but who writes a 1 like a 7?

People that write it with a line through it are generally mathematicians, or so I have noticed.

Aye, for the reason I posted.
I wondered about this after noticing that my maths teacher writes them with lines through when he sees that I do, and normally otherwise.

I've never used the the little crossbar...... thing.

I think the other way looks better, but I can't be bothered to do it everytime I write them.

Normally, innit.

The way with the line through it is generally done in mainland Europe, I notice it in France often, it's so confusing because they write "1" in a similar shape to a "7" or "^" a mixture between the two.

I write all of my 7s and the letter Z with a line through it. I think it looks better. When I was younger I was taught "7" that way, but I changed because I thought it looked cooler. Now I don't even think about doing it, I just do it.

I put a line through it so it doesn't get confusing. Just a habit I suppose.

I write mine with the line through them, the same with most of my "z"s, it's just something I picked up so that I don't mistake them for 1s or 2s, like most other people who do it.

Because it could be a serious answer. What if someone was to make a thread "A song to tell my girlfriend that I caught a nasty STD off her best friend?" We'd all be screwed then.

I do it with the little line in it to prevent confusion with 1.

I only really started doing it because of the people who write 1s like l. I hate that. If they write 1 like l then they usually write 7 like a normal 1, making it confusing for me without the dash.
