Your question was," Is it a spelling mistake?" The answer is definitely no. It is a grammatical error, a capitalization error, but not a spelling error. When you capitalize a word, you don't change its spelling.

Interesting point, poor source. I'd say that it's both a spelling and a grammar error., The word is spelled incorrectly using an incorrect letter- in this example a lower case letter "g", and of course it also shows poor knowledge of grammar.

People are just so funny.


Lol, it's not even that your bizarro version of history is interesting, nor your inability to spell Germany (twice if you count your "german") or indeed Canada.


He spelled them correctly, he just didn't capitalize them.

More likely a spelling WASP.

Using the correct letter to spell out a word correctly is part of spelling. Using the wrong letters to spell out a word is incorrect. A capital letter is not the same as its lowercase version. A child can explain this difference.

Sounding out the name of a letter is not the same as writing it. An "a" is also an "A", for example. America is spelled corectly. america is not.

It's not difficult.

What makes camel case so superior? Almost all the manuscripts I read in a regular basis are in either majuscule or miniscule, so I think those are both acceptable forms. Not a spelling error. polish death camps is a correct way to spell that.

Do you think there's a difference between the words polish and Polish? They're spelled differently as written. They have very different meanings depending on how they're spelled using the letters, DY.

Oh no! Betiko foed me! This is a disaster, folks. He won't be able to read my posts without clicking. Whatever shall I do?

Lol- a shrewd move. I saw no silver lining on this dark dark cloud. Being foed by a homophobic poster from Belgium (or Spain?, maybe) was, I thought, the end of me.

Some crises are really opportunities though. Buy Logitech, folks!
