Why don't you capitalize your letters? You're the ONLY red that doesn't.

so, there were several factors that contributed to my decision to cast them away:

1) i have some mild obsessive-compulsive tendencies, and uniformity in all things is a big one.
2) it bothered me that in some fonts it was impossible to distinguish capital i from lowercase l.
3) i found out that in german all nouns are capitalized, and i appreciated the equal treatment given to a class of words.
4) i had already switched my handwriting to an 'all caps' style because it was cleaner and easier to read, so it wasn't a big stretch to do something similar for typing.

also, i think at some point years ago, it might have bothered whattaybrian. at least, he claims the reason i don't capitalize was because of him. i don't remember him being a catalyst for change, but there may have been a point in time during which i enjoyed annoying him by not capitalizing things. it comes up now and again, like when (for no good reason!) a configuration file is case-sensitive and i have to go back and edit it a second time--he gets a kick out of it.


so, there you go! now you know some of the reasons.

well, i understand that some people will look at it and think 'that's just wrong!'
i mean, i do the same thing when people don't use a serial comma, or incorrectly use 'who' or 'whom'.

i actually think it's kind of cool that people noticed it--to me it's old hat.
