"loads of folks on the internet forego the usage of capital
letters/punctuation/etc"

Folks...meaning 14-year old kids?

I participate in two listserves. Clarity and reasonably proper english
are demanded by users of those groups. Capitalization is vital
online because punctuation is hard to see on small monitors; semicolons
(remember them?) are especially hard to read.

Why should anyone take time to answer a question when the
person asking the question is too lazy to cast it properly?
Note too, she is asking for material for a COLLEGE course.
