To silently judge all those with non capitalised usernames

Consider these two usernames:

- QuacksLikeADuck
- quackslikeaduck

IMHO the first one is clearer, easier to read and just looks better!

AIBU to judge a username by its capitalisation and to secretly attribute the following characteristics to the owner of said username...

People with capitalised usernames are:
- More organised
- More punctal
- Neater

People with uncapitalised usernames are:
- Scatter brained
- Always late
- Messy

And even if your username is only one word it should still start with a capital letter!

OK I know IABVVU, and I am probably offending a good 50% of you right now! That's the point of AIBU innit?

But... am I right? grin

Although the 'i' instead of 'I' used in sentences is far more scary....

Obviously I'm going to disagree, judge awaygrin

It might be worth checking if the people who post on the Pedants' Corner threads are more likely to have names with capitals.

I'm off to change my name now so I have a capital G in the middle.

I'm not in the least offended!

I'm just here to wave my little h in your face.

Judge away!

I suppose I could be offended, however, yes, the characteristics you've mentioned could describe me blush

CommanderShepard Thu 20-Nov-14 09:52:51

I'm pathologically untidy, personally.

nyzz Thu 20-Nov-14 09:53:22

BTW, being really thick but how do you change your username?

TywysogesGymraeg Thu 20-Nov-14 09:55:05

Is this better? smile

gamerchick Thu 20-Nov-14 09:55:12

Heh I thought of changing the middle letter to a capital when I read that grin

EElisavetaofBelsornia Thu 20-Nov-14 09:55:18

I am untidy, pathologically early, and have an extra capital in my username.

Go on. Judge. Maybe it'll improve your day? I like to help people keep their antisocial need for superiority ticking along smile

I am the most punctual person I know.

I am very tidy & organised.

I am a shit typist & often press caps lock instead of Shift & would end up getting my name wrong all the time.


magimedi Thu 20-Nov-14 09:57:32

See - I didn't press shift & ended up with 1 instead of !

I capitalise correctly, obviously, but perfectly fit the profile of a messy, scatterbrained non capitaliser. Maybe I should lose my capitals so as not to mislead people as to my true nature?

BreconBeBuggered Thu 20-Nov-14 09:59:11

I think capitals fit in better here. I have usernames elsewhere that look better as lowercaseuser. I don't know why that should be the case. Even here, some names look perfectly natural in lower case and would become wrong if corrected.
I'm off to pick the splinters out of my arse now.

OpalQuartz Thu 20-Nov-14 09:59:14

I use capitals but I am

- Scatter brained
- Always late
- Messy

QuacksLikeADuck Thu 20-Nov-14 10:00:22

Much better TywysogesGymraeg as I have to say, I had no idea where one word ended and the next one began before you did that!

all lowercase is easier on the eye. using capitals looks crap as there is no spacing.

ShesAnEasyWuffer Thu 20-Nov-14 10:02:51

Although my 'she's' doesn't have an apostrophe....
