Why do people write "am" instead of "I am"?

 

I've seen many times that people write "Am" instead of "I am". When I first saw that, I thought it was incorrect, but now I believe it is not.
For example, the other day, someone wrote a comment that said the following:


"but am pointing out things that are actually correct"

Why didn't he wrote "But I am pointing out...." ?

I hope you can give me an explanation about this :)
Thank you!

    It's a way of making sure the same words aren't used multiple times in the same sentence. Don't use more words than you have to!
