« Calling all Australians
Where do you get your ideas? »
Some of you have expressed surprise and dismay that I abandoned my archy and mehitabel policy. They wants to know why and if it’s merely a bout of temporary insanity.
The why is easy: I was bored. It was get rid of the no-caps or find a new template. The one takes seconds, the other days. Not a difficult choice.
The no-caps rule lasted quite a long time. To be precise: from 25 May 2005 up till 8 Jan 2008. More than two and a half years. That’s AGES.
I don’t think the no-caps will return. Been there, done that. By all means continue to eschew them in your comments as homage to the way Things Used to Be. I’m all for stubborn nostalgia. I like it almost as much as I like change.

haha! first to leave a comment…
Maybe this is just me, but I kinda like caps. I always get annoyed when my friends e-mail me and leave their ‘i’s lowercase.
By the way, this is my first time leaving a comment here!

Oh, Justine, Justine, Justine! I shall certainly miss the NO CAPS rule. But I truly love EXPRESSING! myself. So I THINK I just MIGHT ABUSE this priviledge for a couple of WEEKS before I get BORED with it. SOOOOOOOOOOO…when do we get to find out mor about the UFB?

I agree with Hillary! too!!! I love to express!!!!
But I also miss the no caps rule. It was fun!! I loved it!!! Like SOOOOOO much! (I wanted to play with the no caps thing)
Is there going to be another rule or anything like that again??

I absolutely love that you called it your archy and mehitabel policy.

I found a zombie food pyramid online. I would’ve posted it on the zombie page, but the comments seemed to be closed.

let’s all have a moment of silence for the no caps rule.
i got so used to the no caps thing that i automatically do it when i’m on a wordpress blog. which isn’t all that often. on livejournal and blogger, i’m all about proper caps.

Thanks be to the Brain Monkeys, I can now read your blog. Yay caps!
January 15th, 2008 at 3:58 PM
me too. I just like shiny new things.
January 16th, 2008 at 12:58 PM
hee hee! CAPS! it doesn’t quite feel right though. like we’re breaking some unspoken rule…
Still, CAPS are my friends!

_iris_ she’s tracking who is using caps, now. that’ll get you on the list and you don’t want to be on the list.
January 16th, 2008 at 3:43 PM
hmmm…what sort of list?

A Blog Overlord sort of a list. Just to keep you on your toes . . .

Justine, this has next to nothing to do with the topic, except I always found the forced lowercase faintly annoying. It is, rather, a plug for the finest Vietnamese-Thai fusion cuisine in central Arizona, owned by another Justine: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/94987
OK, possibly her name is Justina, but she is (I imagine) your Asian-American alter ego, the food is very, very good, and Phoenix is a very pleasant place in wintertime. You’ll thank me when you go. BYOB. Chandler is about a half-hour SE of the PHX airport.
Cheers — Pete Tillman

i think i shall be very wary of the list. justine, lists can be quite scary…the way they tend to become longer of their own volition! *tremble*
it is the brain monkeys, soldering together lists!
