This whole argument against case sensitivity is such a crock. Human beings
are case sensitive. These studies suggesting that case sensitivity is confusing
to learning programmers are, IMO, polluted by sampling biases. Here is my
retort to this suggeston that case sensitivity is bad; have fun gouging your eyes
out:

HoW About a MoRE MODern laNGUAgE, DESiGned FrOM sCRATcH, that STilL Had
