CAPSLOCK Disease Omg

One thing I have a lot of trouble with is trying to read more than two lines of ALL CAPSLOCK. It just makes my brain shrivel up and unless it's particularly compelling I just stop reading.

It also presses my prejudice buttons - I can't help but jump to the unwarranted conclusion that ALL CAPSLOCK is an indication of the poster being as aggravating as the ALL CAPSLOCK that I couldn't finish reading.

The funny thing is, that the two times I've ever bothered to approach the person about it, they've turned out to be wonderfully warm and intelligent people, who have subsequently stopped typing in all capitals.

How's that for a life lesson... one that I still haven't learned yet, obviously

I SUSPECT THAT ENCOURAGING HIM TO USE CAPSLOCKS OR USING CAPSLOCK WHEN COMMENTING ON ALL HIS STORIES WOULD RUIN THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE OF BEING MORE MANLY FOR HIM ;)

i like to type in all lowercase a) because i'm lazy and don't like pressing the shift key b) because it reads cuter ;)

hahahahahahha<br />
<br />
IT'S BECAUSE IT'S GENERALLY ACCEPTED AS THE INTERNET EQUIVALENT OF *SHOUTING*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br />
<br />
BUT FOR SOME PEOPLE, CONSTANT SHOUTING SEEMS TO SUIT THEIR PERSONALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br />
<br />
IT DOES, HOWEVER, MAKE IT HARD FOR SOME PEOPLE TO LISTEN TO YOU, BUT IF YOU DON'T CARE THEN DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br />
<br />
:P<br />

SO WHATS WRONG WITH TYPING IN ALL CAPS.O DO IT ALL THE FREAKING TIME.DOES IT ANNOY YOU BECAUSE YOURE FARSIGHTED AND CANT SEE OR NEARSIGHTED AND CANT SEE?MAYBE BECAUSE YOU AHVE A INFERIOR COMPLEX AND LIKE TO SEE THINGS SMALL.I DONT KNOW IM JUST GIVING SUGGESTIONS.WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO STOP TYPING IN CAPS?I WILL TRY BUT JUST NOT TODAY OK?LOL

yeah, i'm like meggers. i usually type in all lowercase, if i'm in a hurry. does that bug you too?

I also am not a fan and I have to agree with everything you said. Caps are to emphasize or to make a poignant point. That is it!

hahahaha! the caps lock gets to me sometimes, but not as much as people who type like this:<br />

dear lord, it disturbs me beyond reason

unfortunately, i'm guilty of the exact opposite. it's a bad habit i got into a few years back. i spose it's better than CAPS LOCK but not much... and i do the same with CAPS LOCK typers - it's as if it's almost blinding. it seems my eyes begin to cross on about line #4. not to mention i feel like i'm being screamed at. generally i give up and abort the mission before the conclusion. i just can't do it.

I have wondered a few times why people decided to use ALL CAPSLOCK when writing, even when not trying to convey particular emphasis.
