i will join you in your fight. i do not use upper case letters when writing both in english and turkish. i find these rules utterly useless as well.
the funny thing is that there are movements that fight for a revision of written english since it has been frozen for such a long time that the pronunciation is completely out of sync with how it is written, which is a fairly arcane mishmash.
the lack of willingness to reform english creates a lot of unnecessary educational problems all over the world. meaning, people have to memorize pronunciation rather than deduce it from the spelling. i find that rather wasteful...
