The creep doesn't deserve capitalization, and all those who are lower case here at DU need to stand up proud and add caps to their ID's.

No more lower case! Except for w. and "dick." Oh, include rush and sean, too.

Hope you are with me; I was the faygokid. Now I'm the Faygo Kid, and damned proud of it. Please join me!

1. Hmmmm....now that's a thought.
The lower case l in my name has bothered me for a while, but only because I'm a closet punctuation nut. I can't help it. I've graded/corrected so many elementary compositions that it's second nature.

Hmmmm...maybe this is the time to correct my own "paper".

I think I like your "new" name better, too. Name pride...woot!

2. Please join me in honoring President Obama by using caps. You deserve it.
Name pride, indeed. They go lower case.

We are now upper case. Please do it, Livvy, and all the best.

3. Hrumph...It won't let me do it.
It says the user name is already taken. Well, that is true. I am the only livvy here, but it won't let me change the first letter only. I guess I'd have to make a more drastic change, and that I don't want to do.
Maybe I'll post the request in the directions thread. :shrug:

5. I never capitalized
bush's name..it was a long time before I could write it and not substitute something else more descriptive.

But, you're helping me with my decision tomorrow on whether I should capitalize my name. :) Food for thought as it were.
