Somewhere in my teens i started only capitalising the pronoun "i" when i began a sentence with it because a capitalization rule says first letter of first word of new sentence we capitalize. We do not capitalize other pronouns (he, she, they) and it made no sense to me capitalize the one referring to myself.I'm particularly interested in 'i' for 'I' as I think the answer is a compelling insight into the mind of the writer of it.
I generally do follow most grammar and punctuation rules no matter where or what i'm writing. If in a hurry or agitated i make more typos and especially with subject matter i feel strongly about i usually proofread before hitting 'post'. If i find one i missed later i correct when possible.I would like to see capitalizing and periods (at least to come back). It is so hard to read posts in groups on fb where they run paragraphs together. No periods. No capital letters. Ugh...
Rarely do I point out other's mistakes. It's not polite, and it wouldn't be welcomed in most instances. It only jumps off the page to my own eyes.I generally do follow most grammar and punctuation rules no matter where or what i'm writing.

But i am pickier about my own errors than other people's. As long as i feel no confusion about their meaning i will only point out someone else's mistakes/typos if they've asked me to proofread something or if they been trying to make others agree with their opinion on the basis of how 'educated' they are. Then they need to be taken down a peg.
I have been typing the majority of my posts in lower case because I don't have caps lock on my Chromebook & I get tired of holding the shift key all the time. Plus after being on and off a computer at work all day I am tired and simply don't care. There's no big significant mystery behind it. I just don't feel like it.I remember doing that. I had a point. I don't remember what the point was. Could the few of you who use 'i' instead of 'I' please explain why? Does your keyboard not capitalize? Been curious about this for awhile now. Thanks.
