    A good five years overdue. Neither are proper nouns anymore (and haven't been for a long while).

    I'm going to send them an e-mail letting them I agree with the change to internet, though for some reason I thought the change had already been made.

    The once-a-year let's justify why the "committee" exists. It's change for the sake of change and to justify paychecks.

    Bigger fish to fry than this stuff. Make real changes and be more consistent in other areas. This is nothing.

    Can someone explain why "internet" and "web" are now lowercase, but "World Wide Web" is still capitalized?
