I was just surfing the thread until I hit this quote. Then a follow up post by Brad where (once again) Shin was spelled "shin". I don't know Shin. I don't care about Shin. But for fooks sake, if he's a person his name should be capitalized. Do it enough for your phone to learn it. Or start posting with a computer instead of a phone, where better tools are available. Or just pay more attention.
Despite me appreciating Brads comments in this thread, blaming a phone for ones failure to properly capitalize proper names strikes me as absurd. More to the point it's indicative of a major problem today: people choosing to use [censored] technology and then blaming it for poorly written comments or arguments. And yes, I've done it too [I have to go back and fix my own posts on Facebook many times a day.]
Phone sized computers, and crappy social media software ill suited to use in a continuing conversation or thread of discussion, will kill us.
Imagine of our magic texts were written with excuses like these!
Ok I'm back to oblivion...
