    The comic sans font is only slightly worse than the random word capitalization.

    Nothing to say to this... so I`ll talk about something else instead.

    How do you do Italics on these pages?

    And what happend to the SPOILER button? I liked that.

    Have you seen Oyster`s icon? what is she licking out of his navel? Frightening!

    Does FancyLad really have 3 nipples like I heard?

    The comic sans font is only slightly worse than the random word capitalization.

    I think it`s better. I think basic mistakes in English are a bigger issue than a slightly informal font when it comes to professional image.

    A better criticism of the original message would be the shoddy misuse of exclamation marks. A moderately well educated 10 year old should know better. That`s worse than Random Capitalisation within Sentences.

    Why do people do either? I`m genuinely curious.

    How do you do Italics on these pages?

    Use HTML-style quote tags. An italic tag would make more sense, but quote tags get the job done and save you two characters.

    Fake. Easy to tell it was put on a classroom door. A real fortune 500 company would have removed the message and put a correct one up in its place.

    I`ll take the bait. Fortune 500 should be capitalized because it`s a proper noun. It`s Fortune Magazine`s annual list of America`s 500 corporations with the highest revenue.

    > I`ll take the bait

    Ah well, if we`re playing Grammar Nazi...

    "Comic Sans" should be in quotes. It should also have a TM after it. The long hyphen should be a semi-colon. "We" are not a Fortune 500 company; the COMPANY we work for is. "Company" should be lower-case but "Fortune 500" is correct. "Lemonade Stand" should be lower-case, and should include an appropriate disclaimer, such as "not, for example, a lemonade stand", since no-one has specifically claimed in the first notice that we ARE a lemonade stand.
