Knew a guy that used caps most of the time, people would give him a hard time, thing was he was handicapped and it was just easier for him to type that way. Some of the grammar Nazi's and spell checkers really just need to lighten up a little.. just my opinion
You're right....I don't work.

I put in anywhere from 50 to 70 hours a week and still find the time to spell right.

Lon, I'm with you! I don't care if it's the interwebz or a college term paper - we all need to learn to use our language correctly. Bad habits are VERY hard to break and if you write crappy on the webz or your phone - that will leak into writing where it counts - like job applications.

Our youth are dumbed down enough and we need to help folks to communicate effectively. Texting shorthand is EVIL and hurts folks...

Better get used to it NGIB kids abrieviate everything. We even have smilie options in this forum the interwebs rule. I originate from the DOS generation when grammer mattered but we have to move on.

Then stop using LOL, ROFL and countless other shortcuts you and everyone else uses everyday on here.

I know my spelling and grammar are not perfect If you don't like it Classes are $1000 + books and gas I will accept checks, money orders, and Paypal for payments.
