Could you be a bit more specific?

I'm assuming he means when you click on the password field, a little tip pops up if you have capslock on. The login screen to windows has something similar. I doubt that's even possible on a webpage, either way it seems unnecessary.

I meant that when you type in an incorrect password, and it says "incorrect password", you make it say "incorrect password. Remember that passwords are caps sensitive, check your caps" or something similar to that. I'd assume it would be very easy since it would just be changing the text of the page when typing an incorrect password, but I could be wrong.

You're wrong, password here is not case sensitive.
God is real.

What on Earth are you talking about?

Why would we do that? There are many reasons why a password can be wrong, why should we give special attention to one? All passwords in the world are case-sensitive.

Because it's one of the more obvious things that people forget to check.

Incorrect.

Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

If you can't demonstrate it, then you shouldn't believe it.
