i was wondering, does anybody else here write in lowercase? if so why? do you do it often?

what do you think of others that write in lowercase? is it 'cool' or 'lame'?

Yeah on my phone I don't bother to use the correct grammar when posting on here, I dunno sometimes when the message doesn't really matter that much typed writing looks more visually appealing when it's all lower case. Some posts just give off a sense of 'i need to be lower case!!!'

I often use lower case on here too because I browse a lot from my iPad without autocorrect settings so I have to manually capitalise which I can't really be bothered to do so it's simpler just to write in lower case.

Visually, I like both lower and upper case. I especially like using upper case for chart stuff because I feel it looks more neat but continuous lower case often creeps into my school work which isn't that great.

It can be a lot harder to read something entirely in lower case. A capital letter at the start of a sentence can be easier to spot than the full-stop at the end of the previous sentence.

Besides, consider the following two sentences.

He warmed the frozen Robin by the fire before taking him upstairs and putting him to bed.

He warmed the frozen robin by the fire before taking him upstairs and putting him to bed.

The first sentence makes you look kind and thoughtful. The second makes you look weird.

I rarely don't write in sentence case (OCD?) although I can successfully write all Google searches in lower case since case doesn't affect anything, unless I paste something kink.gif

I suppose it's better than ANNOYING CAPITAL LETTERS IN EVERY SENTENCE THAT LOOKS LIKE THE POSTER IS SHOUTING

rather than a little sentence all lower case i'm not that fussed thinking.gif

I have occasionally done it if whatever I'm saying just seems to fit better in all lower case, like maybe if I'm quoting a specific line from a song that I'm using as a reply to something. Stuff like that. I do it very rarely though.

Just to add, I don't really like typing in all capitals unless I feel I kinda have to, so for emphasis, I prefer using italics instead, although that may be more difficult to spot in a piece of text.

I can never pull off the writing in lower case all the time like some can, plus I'm so used to it, I'm at the point where the world just doesn't feel right at all unless I capitalise that one word at the start of my post/document. Though a sentence in lower case is preferable to one WITH ALL CAPS UNNECESSARILY (I'm actually agreeing with Spinning Adam here, gosh)

It annoys me when people on Facebook post status updates Where Every Word Begins With A Capital Letter. It's like, why?! I know the title in this thread has it but that's a title plus obviously meant to be ironic.

People still do that?! I thought it was a 2009 12 year old 'cool' thing.

Personally, I much prefer to write 'normally', adding in capitals where they are needed. Occasionally if I'm being lazy or it reflects a humorous tone that I'm trying to convey, then all lowercase works well. It used to bother me in terms of being try-hard to be different, but nowadays quite a few posters have incorporated this way of posting so it's rather omnipresent in The Lounge, and doesn't bother me at all anymore. It comes across as quite chilled actually, the aforementioned ALL capitals is a much more heinous way of typing, headache inducing.

I know right. People still put 'x' at the end of every single post too. I get it if you're using it in a place where it seems affectionate or cute, but why every single post?

I find it incredibly annoying, although like Mattias says, it's even more annoying when people start every word with a capital letter!
