Please, it puts tears in my eyes. Only the first letter of a sentence and names need it.

It is more about aesthetics than about doing my duty as the head of the Empire's Sphere of Grammar


Next, on Socialist's threads: A thread teaching people how to apply Hegelian dialectic into their discussions, as a means to improve productivity and decrease pointless bickering. All in fancy Yorkshire English. Stay tuned!

My grammar teacher would disagree with you.

And you have a long way to go to reach SirCopperfield's lofty standards.

Well, it is not gramatically wrong as I said, it is aesthetically unrefined. In American English this is left in the open, but in French, Portuguese, Spanish and Catalan I know it is incorrect, and in formal English it is to be avoided (like wearing a lime tuxedo in Buckingham Palace).

About SirCopperfield, this is a rather serious thread and if I were to try to usurp our dear chap Copperfield, I'd use proper English English with hints of Cockney.

You are supposed to capitalize most of the words in titles. Examples: Star Wars: A New Hope or Star Wars: Attack of the Clones or Star Wars: The Old Republic

If it bugs you that much, then I would suggest you avoid reading the English forums. Or find contentment in the fact that most of the titles aren't in 1337-speak.

Speaking of grammar mistakes in titles, please isn't a complete sentence. That's a fragment.

I argued with my epistemology professor about Hegel's dialectic. We never did reach a compromise.
