This year, I resolve to minimize my use of incaps when writing about commercial products and companies.
This is not hard.
bell hooks does not write her name with incaps - that would be the case only if she went by bEll hoOKs or something.
bell hooks is not a commercial product or company.
That is all.
I love bell hooks. And Watson’s okay too.
I could argue that a pen name is still very much a “brand,” but point taken.
Oh great, so not only is Harry Potter a devil worshiper but now he’s got one of them femiNazis for a girlfriend? Let’s get this boycott started! Stop buying Harry Potter merchandise! Especially those broomsticks!
2 seconds (literally) of searching shows that bell hooks appears to prefer the lower-case version of her name and most people abide by that preference.
The post on the main page has it correct, though.
Main pa… ohhh yeah!
I should look at that more often.
