    Are You Angry With Me?

    I get the wrong message that they're shouting or angry with me. It's like texting. The communication skills are already limited enough when you text-you can't see there facial expression, hear there tone of voice, or see there body language to show how they really are acting-so...

    There Really Is No Need to Shout...

    Just like in the real world, its always the person that loses it and raises their voice that ends up looking like a knob. Aside from that, its really difficult to read. If you want to get your point across effectively, write it clearly in lower case. Prof read it to insure it...

    Caps >.

    I think most would agree that when you come across something written in all caps you probably dont want to continue reading whatever it is. I think 1 of 2 things whenever I come across this.. Either that person wants attention, they think typing in caps will get them this.. Or...

    Type In Caps

    They say peeps who type in Caps are shouting.  To me, it doesn't bother me if it is used in caps...I don't take it in that manner (shouting).  I just think they are comfortable using caps.  No big deal!

    Caps Are For the Beginning of Sentences.

    Well, and for proper nouns and abbreviations. But they aren't for emphasis. That's what bold and italics are for. And they most definietly aren't for every single letter of every single word of every single sentence. They just aren't. I have to say, I am guilty of the occasional...

    Enraged.

    Just When Everything Is....

    I have no problem when caps are used for certain words or sentences to be highlighted. Words that really need to be stated- terms that you wish the person to find amid a long text. But i dislike when text messages and stories, and full comments are completely in caps- it does...
