    I did a recent Apple operating system upgrade on my phone and whatever made it capitalize a new line after a paragraph break doesn’t work anymore.

    i myself don’t care but just fair warning to the OCD folks whose right eye will twitch when they don’t see what they don’t wanna see while reading my inanities.

    just skip them altogether would be my advice

    Capitalising -- not grammar, but a grammar **** could be freelancing.

    upper/lower case "error" is often pure laziness/not giving a frick, as is lack of proper punctuation and random abbrvtn

    as opposed to poor grammar, wrong 'postrophe usage and spelling errors which are obviously signs of lower intelligence :)

    Thank you very much for not beginning this sentence with "So...".

    So, it seems to have affected punctuation as well.

    My inner demons are fair fulminating with barely suppressed rage, while my fingers wish to turn to cloven hooves in order to more effectively pound out my sputtering annoyance at some of the heinous assaults displayed against our fair language within this page!. :)

    Long may you continue to annoy the brown-shirts. Remember, after the plaster has been applied to the butt-hurt, soothe the nerves with 'There, their, they're'

    Stop me if you've heard this (it's not mine...):\

    If you don't like/use capitalization, how are you going to tell the difference between:

    "...helping my Uncle Jack off a horse..."

    and

    "...helping my uncle jack off a horse..."

    ?

    Somebody used a hyphen for no reason. The word is police.

    The Darned things people will do to just draw some Attention to Themselves.

    ++

    ++

    The hyphen is a punctuation mark used to join words, and to separate syllables of a single word. The use of hyphens is called hyphenation. Non-hyphenated is an example of a hyphenated word. Wikipedia

    This hurts my brain. Non-hyphenated is an example of hyphenation. What?

    or "... helping my Uncle Jack OFF a horse..."

    To be fair, the horse knows what it did.

    I try to be aware, and use capitalization properly.
    A strange quirk I have (among many), is that I capitalize Mom and Dad, when referring to my own.
    It’s how I show my love, respect and fond memory of them.
    Thanks for listening.
