And then there's those java and MSFT discussion lists where every
variable is written like this by tradition: MyDocuments, FirstLogin,
They are all, to the brain, a unique token with meaning seperate from
their split tokens. If anyone sends me email about MyDocuments it's
likely to be spam.
I suppose the statistics of variant configurations will answer the
question, but I think the approach of viewing the words differently then
intended (reading them by people) might backfire.
