was what i said really unintelligible gibberish, in all caps, with no punctuation that needed to be deciphiered?
just because ya'll might disagree with me doesnt mean you should try to pull technicallities like that out just because the first letter of the first word in my sentences wasnt captalized.
im sure sara palian's ghost writer had to correct alot of her grammer in her new york times number one selling book too. im sorry i cant afford that kind of resource when throwing some of my opinions out on the internet. im just a common folk, not en elitist english major.
Flagrant violation of the Forum's rules. There is the door------------------>
Readng the rules I don't see anything requiring him to capitalize anything. No dog in the fight, but I was kinda suprised to se someone get banned for something so trivial. Maybee there is some background info I missed out on. If there is another set of rules, perhaps they should be posted with the rules link.
