Can I use the letter 'i'in small letter in the middle of a sentence? I have seen many places where people have used it. Please let me know whether 'I' should always be used in capital letter or not.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Where is the duplicated? There should be a reference linked somewhere. – marbel Apr 10 '14 at 20:00

'I' referring to oneself should always be capitalised. The standard of writing online is exceedingly variable, which is why you see ppl using 1337 and txt spek.

It doesn't make it grammatically correct. Please don't do it.
