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

    I don't even write "ham". I prefer "amateur." However anyone else refers to it really doesn't bother me.

    I needed a nice band plan chart to print so I typed "ham bands" (all lower case) into Yahoo! search. Here's what I got back:
    HAM (band)
    HAM is an Icelandic rock band formed in 1988.

    only if that floats your boat. Personally, I like the hams baked with pineapple rings with a cherry in the middle.
