The writer clearly has no idea how to write a simple sentence. It makes me sad that she thinks words can be capitalized without regard to their meaning. It makes me sad that she has no idea how to use punctuation of any sort. It makes me sad that Yahoo! thinks that this is acceptable on one of its most popular services.
