Hi.
8:50pmMatthew

Grammatically correct, I see?

lol
8:51pmJustin

Yes. What's wrong with that?
8:52pmMatthew

Nothing. I just feel weird typing like this.
8:52pmJustin

Why? Because everyone absolutely must act like a jackass on the internet?
8:53pmMatthew

Internet is capitalized. And no.
8:53pmJustin

HAHAHAHA you're funny.

Internet is NOT capitalized, and don't make me pull out a punctuation site on you.
8:54pmMatthew

YES IT IS. I'LL PROVE IT.
8:54pmJustin

Wikipedia doesn't count.

My English teacher said that Internet must be written with a capital I.
8:58pmJustin

Mr. Somerville

Never heard of him.

And I need more proof than that.

Whatever.

It didn't say that it needs to be CAPTIALIZED.

You gave a reason why it should be.

But not that it NEEDS to be.
9:04pmMatthew

HA I WIN YOU LOSE. Nice try.
9:04pmJustin

Typical, lazy American response.

Destroys decent debates.
9:05pmMatthew

Question mark

?
9:05pmJustin

We were having a decent debate but then you just destroyed it.
9:05pmMatthew

How?
9:05pmJustin

I WIN YOU LOSE THE END.

That's how.

Instead of addressing my observations,
9:06pmMatthew

By proving you wrong and rubbing it in?
9:06pmJustin

you say that I'm trying to mislead you.

You didn't prove me wrong.

It didn't say that it needs to be CAPTIALIZED.

You gave a reason why it should be.

But not that it NEEDS to be
9:06pmMatthew

I showed that ENCARTA capitalizes "Internet"
9:07pmJustin

Encarta capitalized every damn word they show.
9:07pmMatthew

BULLSHIT>
9:08pmJustin

They do. Find another word and it'll be capitalized.

Like aardvark

It'll show Aardvark

I still don't think internet should be capitalized.

It isn't a proper noun.

It's a thing.

Is internet capitalized? Really?

I don't think so, and my reasons are listed.

What do you think? And why?

in the form of a noun, yes. in the form of an adjective, no. if you were saying something like "internet resources" its not capitalized but if you were saying something like "Internet Protocol Suite" then it would be capitalized. question answered

*lock*
