I have read the messages about upper/lower case and thing you are
missing the main reason why many people prefer case insensitivity:

for a human, the word: "dog" is the same as "DOG".
When we communicate using sound, we do not have a case distinction.
An "A" is an A independently of case.
Why should I have to use a special case just because I write my words
in a text? To enhance the reading and understanding of the text - yes!
But not to help lazy programmers.
All my programms handles case insensitivity and it is very simple to
do it.
So why not allow it?
