Agreed. My handwriting is so terrible that I only inflict it on my friends. For trades, I prefer not to write on the disc anywhere -- inside ring included -- and instead either write on the tyvek sleeve or include a slip of paper inside the sleeve to I.D. the disc.

But for my own discs, I always write on the disc and have never had any problems. Even if I get a disc that's labeled on the inner ring, I usually write on the disc as well, so I can read it even if it's sitting on something that's colored dark.
