How important is penmanship to you?

I came across this article, which had me thinking about the value of penmanship. I have been told by several people I have incredibly beautiful handwriting, even when I'm just scribbling down a grocery list. However, every male in my family needs to print or type things out, because theirs is illegible. Because of this, and because I know cursive is no longer a prerequisite in life, I never forced our now 17yo son into repetitive hours of practicing his penmanship... with the exception of developing a signature, of course.
