Why do some people not capitalize I when writing?

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.
It's only a speculative guess Pepper, but if you were to text me using lower case only, the program in your phone would correct any grammatical errors, such as capital omissions, punctuation and incorrect spelling. Some people rely so much on that corrective technology that they forget that it won't happen on this forum. There again, what do I know?
