    what do you think about typing in all lower case like i'm doing now? is it kla$$y or tacky? what do you think of those that do it?

    some think it's cool and portrays the individual as being casual, laid back, and carefree. i disagree and think those who type in all lower case are lazy, immature, disrespectful, old farts (not thinking of anyone on rj of course).

    those of you who type in all lower case, do you do it all the time or are there exceptions?

    i usually do it in casual settings. i wouldn't do it like when i type a formal email, business correspondence, or when posting to political forums.

    i know rj doesn't have a rule against posting in all caps but are there any rules pertaining to all lower case?

    I've never, uh, thought about it, but I'd be much more open to analyzing spelling errors in a thread title (it's the title, how can you not spell check the title). Thread titles that are too long are a gimmick that doesn't work, get's more people to "notice" his thread. The content should be the real draw. Another thing AAAarrrRe THRead TitlEEEEEEsss, like this or some variation. It's another cry for attention before people can even click. But all in all, I don't think you can read too mach into one little letter being left not capitalized; it's the content of a thread I would judge. It says a lot about the person. And, their RJ moniker, love yours, by the way. cHeErs.
