Zach- I prefer the snake_case myself as it5 is more readable. But one of the best reasons I have come across for always using underscores in ruby is the ruby is from Japan and Matz has said that snake_case is much more readable for japanese people to read. That and the fact that the whole standard library and most ruby code you will come across uses snake_case so camelCase looks out of place in ruby code.

The quote below is just one other person's opinion, but if you know what that person has accomplished then perhaps you understand why that opinion has value: "I eschew embedded capital letters in names; to my prose_oriented eyes, they are too awkward to read comfortably. They jangle like bad typography." Quote is from: http://www.lysator.liu.se/c/pikestyle.html
