Grammar help - "on" and "upon."


I want to say this sentence with proper grammar - can you please guide me? "I don't judge people based upon race, creed, color or gender. I judge them based upon spelling, grammar, sentence structure and punctuation." What proposition should I use and when? "on" or "upon".

    Hi John,

    I struggle with grammar and writing in general. I love to communicate, but the details of grammar and punctuation often stump me.

    Enjoyed your answer - simply and straight forward and deferring to the experts.

    Thank you!

    Hi Catherine,

    It is interesting how we sometimes prefer more formality. I didn't see this question as one of formality until I read the answers. I can clearly see how that one word could be more formal.

    I am with you on the traditional.
