I'll agree with K on that one. . . although it's only partially Brad's fault. . .  

I'd say that this turned into Circus Parade about the time you hit the Submit button!!  

Now then, let's see it K!!!

I think everyone should grow up and smile
who care what a person does with their writing.  If you don't want to read them, you don't need an excuse.  Just don't read them.  Or are we in grade school.
I, myself, as me don't care how a person writes as long as one writes for others to read.  And that is what i thought this was about.

let's see, did i spell everything correctly, ,,,,,,,,use my majic dust... cap my i 's  no......OH WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A smile a day keeps the world in smile's.

Well, it was very intersting to see how this thread wandered.  

I think the original complaint was about those poets who feel compelled, for whatever reason, to capitalize the entire poem's title...kinda like an attention getting scheme. Couple with that my personal opinions on the strangulation of the English language when said titles are rife with wanton mispellings to promote their individuality, just like all the other hAcKeR_wAnNaBeEz.

However, looking over the replies to this thread, I see another undercurrent...that of capitalization of individual sentences within the body of the work. This I see as less of an attention gambit, and more on the lines of grammatical syntax. I, too, capitalize the first word in all lines in my poems. The only negative aspect may be that of reading, since a capital letter usually denotes a line break, which would hamper continuity of the poetic thought. I guess the same could be said about punctuation within a poem.

And, since I implied that internal capitalization is the style I use, I guess I'll have to allow others to have their own particular style, though I might not like it.  

So, if these people want to go on PUTTING THEIR ENTIRE TITLE IN CAPS, that's fine with me....but don't expect to see my reply within. Call me crazy, but I just don't like being yelled at for no good reason (netiquette).

well well well! what a hornets nest you opened here!
i myself use capitals now and then usually in the title and sometimes by accident in the poem itself (i logg on in caps and forget to turn it of) may i make a sugestion if it upsets so many people why not send out an etequete e mail to all new members you send sugestions on how to post and  to encourage replies etc so why not that you forget many people new to this site are also new to computers or internet and are still finding their way between you all you have complained about everything from spelling and grammer to set up and styles  i personaly dont have a problem i agree with the minority the forum is there for people to read and post poetry the choice of what you read is entierly yours   the choice of how they present their work should be theirs unless guidelines are set

Okay. To clarify...rofl...I have recently received official word, she DOES NOT hate me, she just chooses not to associate with me. And...easy enough to do. I am actually quite shy... (serenity exits, batting eyelashes)

pssst...I am planning on cutting that hair, Sea...y'want some? thank you!
