  • Cool... I thought it was capitalized because I had entered it with a capital "S". I deleted and re-typed it before I clicked the word and found out what happened. :P

  • It's capitalized because this word entered the system before I'd even launched the site, when I was setting up the profile page, with the "you are a..." and "seeking a..." options. I hadn't yet decided to lowercase everything. I think I'll leave it as-is, as a sort of historical artifact :-)
