Hey that's one of the best parts of Ruby, aside from the siglets and capitalization rules for constants, you _can_ do whatever naming you want.

Glad to haave your support :)

My opinion does not count for much but I love Ruby openness and hate
the naming conventions.  I much prefer camel case and .NET guidelines
for naming than underscore and lowercase hell.  I am just getting
started with Ruby and have no intention of following the naming
conventions if I can avoid it.  IronRuby and .NET are my platform of
choice for the future, even in its immature state.
