Going POSTAl

Two lowercase L readers, David and Daniel, each submitted this same find on PostSecret. I think this is a classic case of letter crunching, because the postcard author clearly knew his uppercase L's, but must have panicked when he got near the edge with THEMSElF. Or maybe because "themself" isn't actually a word in modern English.

And what's with the lowercase 'i's in ORiENTATiON and 'a' in aLONE? I think inconsistency is worse than a consistent misuse of one letter.
