I couldn't understand for a moment why people would think that “Self" versus "self” is confusing.. and then I remembered that Apple does not (by default) distinguish file names with different casing in the filesystem… I think we either educate people or we keep them ignorant in the name of their best interest. Apple seem to regularly choose the bottom end. I hope after 40 years someone will decide it is time to look forward and embrace Self
