No problem. I just wanted to clarify that it's not taboo or frowned upon. It's actually fine when used properly.

Prohibited by custom. I consider it taboo.
No problem.
I do do it all the time. I wouldn't do it while correcting someone else however.

Not stated anywhere you shouldn't per say. However, it is frowned upon.
Since we're already there, I'll add that it's 'per se', not 'per say'.

And that's the truth.

Type iPhone into your iPod,iPhone, or iPhone they all begin with the small i and if you change it , it says it's incorrect .

Because iPhone, iPod & iPad are the product names. Proper grammar is to capitalize people's names. "I" counts as to not talk in the third person.

Just Target's 2-cents worth.
