Sometimes you see a post that doesn't start with a capital letter around the forum. Admit it, you hate to read the post, right? It just.. hurt my eyes.

Why don't you start with a capital letter? This is forum. Not a chatbox, youtube, facebook or anything similar. People don't really care about your grammar, but at least, try to use capital letters. It'll make your words look more mature.. and nice.

I'm not pointing to anyone but take this as a note. And if you don't know what is capital letter or you don't know how to use it, or you never learn it, watch this video:

there are far worse transgressions against mankind taking place on a regular basis around here. two spaces after a period, to begin with.

i take it you're not a fan of e.e. cummings?

I wonder if what Otter said was a troll, because he didn't start with a Capital and usually does tounge.gif

I find this far more annoying, personally. I can forgive the odd spelling error or grammatical mistake- especially now many people post from Smartphones or other devices that don't necessarily have spell checkers. But this...this shows an intentional desire to make one appear stupid.

what annoys me most is that we have a topic on grammar a mere 10 or so topics from the top..
