The ALL CAPS rule that you are yelling has been a part of the Internet since I started using the net back in 1994.

RedNinja is not making it up.

Plus using all caps make your messages harder to read.

I think all caps, all the time is Frickin obnoxious and it automatically gives me a bad impression of the person doing it. Even being the internet novice that I am, it's obvious that its harder to read, unnecessary and ANNOYING!

Sorry but it is a pain to read. It is easier to read all small case rather than all large case. Several on here type without any caps. Every forum that I am a member of will tell you not to use all caps.

I remember being told that all CAPS is a form of yelling or making an announcement (!!!). I was told this before I even started using the internet. I was told that it is a style of writing newspaper articles, announcements, flyers, and some story writing. So as far as I know you are yelling whether you are or not. GOT IT!!! .

Hope you understand. We are not trying to be uptight and mean.
