True.

let's see if something can be done.

i can remove the script entirely, which is exactly what i'll do if i can't find the problem.

Liz might have posted before the change was made.

i'm beginning to think having old lowercased messages versus the odd all caps message isn't worth it.

maybe people want to make a point when using all caps, and why shouldn't they be able to! (suppose to be capatiLized to make a point, heh)
