Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the emphasis in Mr.
Nibbelin's letter of complaint was on the complete lack of capitalization
in some of the recent postings on this list. This is a style of writing
that has become very common lately with the increased popularity of instant
messages and chat rooms. While in chat rooms there is usually no
punctuation or capitalization to facilitate a rapid exchange of comments,
to see this trend make its way into letter writing is an example of
laziness. I don't believe the complaint was about the occasional
grammatical error from our posters whose first language is not English.

Just my $0.02,

Robyn
