You disagree on what composes a sentence. I have to say I'm with Justin on 
this. Why would a sentence without a verb or object not be a sentence? 
Imagine having two of those after eachother. How would you tell where one 
ends and the other starts if there's no period?

Hey, you there!
Yes, you!
Never cry wolf.
My kingdom for a horse!

Those are all sentences in my book and would look silly if the first letter 
was not properly capitalised and/or the last character was omitted.

Anyway, I never found it worth it to debate over this. Your rule is as it as 
and I do not object very strongly. I don't see why I should, as long as 
there aren't any ovbious typos ;)
