Naming Conventions: under_score or lowerCamelCase

Since I tend to be fanatic about all naming conventions: you can teach a monkey to count (even better than yourself) but you cannot teach a monkey to write (hence to read) - Math vs Literature. Some personal observations about the lower camel case convention (lcc for brevity):
  • lcc is "easy" because it does not take the effort to distinguish between methods and properties
  • lcc is shorter with a character (the missing  _)
  • lcc is what everyone is accustomed to
None of the above arguments makes sense to me unless we neglect the factor readability.
