    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...

    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?

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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.
