I learned to type the "right" way, but over time developed my own style that works for me. I suspect that's pretty much true of anyone who pounds keyboards for hours per day.

I picked up all my speed playing MUDs and being in chat rooms.

Never took a formal typing class, myself. Would probably go nutty. In general, I started on the net in the mid/late-90's with chat rooms, did some RPing in the old AOL RDIs, branched from there into some indi groups, hopped into MUSHes for even more in-demand speed/output ratio, discovered MUDs from there, generally emphasizing speed over output, and all this went on for a bit until XI. Could perhaps mix random games like StarCraft or Diablo II in, but they were never very chat heavy unless I was BSing with friends.

Being right-handed, I still think it's a shame how much mouse use neuters control potential in the keyboard+mouse scheme for the average user who hasn't dropped $60+ on a gaming mouse. Hell, I have a Razer and barely use the pad below the top row of numbers just because it makes my thumb feel like it'll pop from the joint.
Violence good. Sexy bad. Yay America.
