It would be correct to say vast majority.  As you can rarely get every
one's opinion, you must settle for a subset.  Because WordPress's
support/conversation is well established in the forums, here, and in
Trac, if most of the people in the subset *don't* like something , you
can be sure that most WordPress users *don't* like it either.

On my iPhone, when I type 'iphone' the little box comes up and my text
is replaced with 'iPhone'.  However, I can *choose* to hit the little
x, the little box will go away, and I am left with 'iphone'.  I like
the *choice*, because maybe I don't like CamelCase, and I'll type
Camelcase, because I don't want to hit the shift key in the middle of
the word.  If a little box pops up with the CamelCase version, then
I'd go with it, but no disrespect intended Camelcase is just easier.
