I really don't want this to be taken the wrong way
I'm just curious about the "irritating" thing about no caps? Structurally and grammatically my sentences are correct--aren't they?

It has been more of an "informal style" for me. Obviously, I wouldn't hand in an assignment like this, but in our forum, for me, informal works. And, for my "informal style," I have found that I can type faster without using the shift key. I'm not a one-finger-one-key-pecker-typer--on a good roll, I can consistently stay around 50 w.p.m.--numbers and the shift key slow me down, thus, I have avoided them when in this informal place.

But for the sake of not being irritating, I will use the necessary and required capitalization, as I stated a few posts ago. And again, I hope my reply will not be taken the wrong way. Just curious.

Every deviation from grammatic and punctuation rules and typing everything in one paragraph makes a text written in foreign language more difficult to read and understand. The Seven Forums is quite international and as far as I've noticed, we non-English speakers are doing quite well in staying in English in accordance to the forum rules.

Even you used the capital 'I' once when you felt it is important ('I don't mind if it is not'). Sometimes it really is important to use capitals: Seven is an OS, seven is a number, People is a magazine, people is us, the people, Frank is a name, frank is being sincere, only to mention some.

It is of course a matter of personal choice. You are entitled to type as you like. I am not criticizing, I just told my opinion. To me it is quite important to try to make my text as clear as possible, although because of English being a foreign language to me I've noticed I make some quite idiotic grammatic mistakes.

Kari, what are you talking about?!?! You do a beatiful job writing in English. If Americas youth had half the grammatical skills you do, I would actually be able to understand them...LOL

Seriously, anyone who didn't know different would think English is your primary language.

Very well stated.

I was only inquiring and I had hoped that I wasn't taken the wrong way. As the poster above me stated, I have never had any problem with your English and how you use it to state and to relate your ideas.

I didn't take your criticism harshly either. You may have been the person who help the next non-native-English speaker to be able to understand what I've been attempting to say for a while , but that person may have not wanted to say anything for fear that I might jump ballistic.

To criticize, one must be open to criticism--right?

(Oh, but I must disagree with one point--I never type all of my thoughts into one big giant paragraph. that would be confusing for everyone)

(Lastly, if I could give rep for your reply, consider that you'd have it. Since I can't give rep, would you be my friend? )
