This is how the questions was shown to me:
את זה?__ אתה
I assume it is a glitch in the formatting, but it through me for a loop!
Also I have noticed a lot of answers show the question mark at the beginning of the sentence like the one above. It would be great if this problem could be fixed.
If I understand correctly what you mean, "writing down" something and simply "writing" something isn't the same. In English they seem very close, but in Hebrew two different verbs are used. Think of writing as writing a book and writing down or jotting a recipe or a grocery list.
