a public service announcement

To political hacks of all colours:

Capitalizing some letters that spell a word in another word (or, its less-clever cousin, capitalizing part of the word and adding letters to make a word within a word) is neither clever nor funny, and should be avoided at all costs.

Examples include:

HArper
LIEberals
multiCULTuralism

For more examples of this misguided attempt at wit and humour, visit The Shotgun and FreeDominion, many blogs, and Anonymous commenters near you.

If you are going to try to make fun of the other team, please at least use clever comparisons, sarcasm or bad puns (the unsung gems of comedy) to do so, and refrain from hitting that shift key any more than you absolutely have to.

Thank you for your consideration.
