I have been directed here from another forum with the hint that I can find real savants gushing with a never ending stream of erudite knowledge
Let us say I insist on my name being written as 'leptokurtic'. How do you start a sentence if you want the first word to be 'leptokurtic'? Do you start with lowercase? Suppose I use the handle '3leptokurtic'. Now what? I know that according to grammar rules you can't start a sentence with a digit. My own hunch is that if you want to be completely grammatically correct, you would say "The user 'leptokurtic' says...". or "The user '3leptokurtic' asked...". You simply WON'T start with leptokurtic. Does anybody see any scenario where this might fail and one would be forced to start with 'leptokurtic'??? Can somebody even insist on his username (is it a proper noun?), or even real life name, being spelt all in lower case?? Or would that in itself be grammatically incorrect?
I guess I could ask this on one of the grammar forums out there on the internet... but where would be the fun in that????
