    1. You’re good, AO, but you’re missing an obscure concept here that spoils your entries. The idea hides in this example from the post:

      That “boys can’t learn from women” is one of the outrageous claims Daniel Flath makes

      Do you see it? When the original quote is blended with the grammar of the new author’s sentence, so that the seam between them requires no inflection, we don’t capitalize the first letter of the quote, even if it was capitalized in the original. We also let the rhythm of the new sentence flow instead of placing a comma before the quoted material.

      Does that change your approach to several of your sentences?
      (Do you care?)
      You are more than welcome to post a revised version.
