Please, please, use "I"

Last Update: May 18, 2017

Hello , fellow members. My short post is for members who are not native English speakers. I belong in the same company too. However, I would like to draw the attention to the writing of I. When I leave comments, I see some of great websites with interesting content who could attract many visitors. However, authors use "i" instead of "I". The capital "I" shows the importance of you as the respectful person. Please, use "I"

All the best, be healthy and wealthy, Nemira.

Good point Nemera, the importance of showing respect is downplayed in today's society, it needs to be highlighted instead, thanks for sharing

It's the first thing we learn over here with English classes at school. The capital "I" and the tongue pronunciation which comes with "th" an unknown move in our Dutch language.

Thanks for the comment, Loes. It is something special about English "I". I did not see in other languages that the word "I " would start as the capital letter.
All the best, Nemira.

I've noticed many "i"s on some websites, too...
Thanks, Gerlinde

There are not so much time to accomplish everything in a perfect way, but this style of writing could be changed quickly. "i" does not look in a professional way.Cheers:)

Thanks Nemira. My E is gone and the A and O are worn. Only the I and U are still entirely visible!

Good reminder.
Sometimes, it's an issue on the hardware you are using. I often times see this in my post and in the posts of others. There's a problem in the shift tab of the computer and you have to check it before you post.

I remember words from my friend when she pointed out how in the USA the privacy and importance of the person emphasized with the word "I." He, she, they or we can start with the small letter, but "I" never, only capital letter.
