    So, you think that they should all be in Caps?

    Well, see, there's usually a reason why someone typed in all caps. People don't just go around randomly capitalizing.

    Yes, usually that person has a reason - often because of an anxiety unshared by the rest of the board.
    I was born; I shall die. Between those two events there is life. I don't know why, and I don't question it; I merely live.

    Exactly my point. When I saw that post for UML I thought there was a new word floating around, "Uml". Things just don't have the same impact without caps. But oh well, I really don't care...just thought it was funny is all.
