    Counter Productive

    WHEN PEOPLE WRITE LIKE THIS I ASSUME THEY WANT TO ATTRACT ATTENTION TO WHAT THEY ARE SAYING BUT I USUALLY JUST AUTOMATICALLY IGNORE LARGE CAPITALISED BLOCKS OF TEXT. but that's just me. i am all for caps with discretion, just not when people do it indiscriminately. it's like...

    It's Appreciated

    when it's tastfully placed. A stressed word here and there. All caps in a sentence or paragraph is hard for my eyes to take though. Also, when I read sentences in caps lock, my reading voice (in my head) starts shouting it out really  s l o w l y  and loudly. Yes, it...

    Heh, Sorry.

    I can't take you seriously or waste my time reading your stuff if you don't know how to use a keyboard.  Unless, it is one of my friends and they are typing big out of anger.  But if I see a story in all caps for no reason, no way Jose!

    What Caps Lock Says To Me...

    Caps lock tells me that you are most probably someone with a low level of intelligence, mainly for the following reasons: Caps lock indicates that you are overcompensating by making your point "stand out" which suggests that what you are saying really isn't worth...

    It's Plain Annoying.

    Every time I see someone write in all caplocks I instantly start reading it like they are yelling. I can't help it. It's so annoying and it makes the person appear to be immature and unintelligent.

    Don't Yell At Me!

    Typing in all caps is the text equivalent to yelling.  I dislike being yelled at in real life; why should I tolerate it online?

    Rant #147 So You Like To Yell Do You

    I really find it a bit rude to post something with all capital letters. I have accidentally written things with the caps lock key on, and when I look at the screen, I see that it is all in caps, except, of course for the letters that are supposed to be capitalized. It really is...

    I Hate It

    I really just get put off reading things that are all capitals. If I click on a story and then I see it's all capitals I just click off again. It just gives me a head to read it.

    Unless

    its put in a normal text as a emphasis technique.  I don't skip over the word or sentence that contains full caps.  But if the whole thing is written in caps, for some reason, I don't know, I just kind of skim through it to see if its someone's anger, or what.  Is that mean...
