Please stop emailing me at work. I'm trying to catch up, but you seem to send mail faster than I can reply.

If you're waiting for a reply, it's not that I don't like you... It's that I haven't gotten that far yet.

I'm starting to feel more and more like Danah.

Sorry Joe, but I don't buy into that crap. Proper names have capital letters at the beginning. That's the rule in the language I use.

ee cummings legally changed his name to lowercase, i don't think it is a rule at all.

spell Danah however you want..

But if you have any clout in getting the AP to stop capitalizing internet, and using "Web site" instead of website .... please do so.

if I capitalize internet, then I have to capitalize Atmosphere, Space, Sky, Universe, etc.

and it doesn't even make sense in words like "internet slang".. how many other places in English do we capitalize an adjective?

That's how we do it in German :)

Ok Jer, I promise not to mail you again about that $1 million deal I wanted to share with you. :P

Nonetheless, I can understand your frustration.
