Do you really care if someone writes HAM instead of ham?

Do you really care if a person writes "HAM" instead of "ham"?

  1. I don't care at all. It's all good to me.

  2. I know it's technically incorrect, but see it as a small point.

  3. I do care, but tend to let it slide

  4. I care about it... and think it's my duty to correct folks whenever they do it.

  5. I REALLY think it's important, and cannot have a meaningful conversation with anyone who writes HAM

    Now up to 14 pages, I can't believe this many people are so passionate about this topic!
    A good issue to talk about I guess!!!

    Yep, I was a subscriber to that one for a year or two.
    It was excellent for my purposes at the time (and would be even now).
    Wish it had persisted.

    It bothers me a lot more when some one posts about Diapoles, Balums, and Verticles in the Tech forums.
