I don’t care what the heck it is as long as someone tells me whether to use userID or userId. I’ve spent too many hours obsessing over this and I still keep going back and forth. What is ID anyway? It seems like it’s both an initialism and an acronym.
I think I lean towards #2 for a simple reason: the rules are the same for initialisms, acronyms, abbreviations, words, or what have you. I just want whatever guidelines are going to allow me to pick a casing and move on with my life as soon as possible. The guideline with the fewest rules is going to be the best at that.
