Thread Name: BS: lower case posts with no punctuation
Subject: RE: BS: lower case posts with no punctuation
I well remember my first lecture from darling Ellen, in London. It was during the "Walt Robertson" thread, about six months ago. She and I, and many others, were e-mailing frequantly. She explained (told?) me that she NEVER uses capitals when e-mailing, as it frees her ... and this from a grand and professional writer. Being new to e-mailing, I assumed that this was what I was supposed to do. I tried it and I totally failed. I just couldn't bring myself to do this grevious wrong. I know, I know, I'm old fashioned, and probilbly a lousy speller, but I just didn't feel 'right' about it. So, I now sleep a little better. If attempting proper punctuation bothers you, Oh well. I guess I'll NEVER be considered "trendy." CHEERS and GOOD THOUGHTS Bob(deckman)Nelson
