Do you know internet etiquette?

Did you know that it's considered yelling to type in all caps? I was just wondering if everyone knew that. Seems like maybe some people don't...

  • LOL! I know! That bothers me too. I have said it to people and they are always like "OH SORRY I DIDN'T MEAN TO MAKE YOU THINK I WAS YELLING. I ALWAYS TYPE IN ALL CAPS." Which is silly. Once you know what something means...why wouldn't you act accordingly??

  • LOL!! My Aunt seems to have a problem with this on our family blog. She doesn't use good grammar either. Though it gives me a good laugh to read her posts out loud, just like they're typed...

  • I did learn that. And I learned it is really easy to tick people off. And I know I am suppose to know what all the abbreviations stand for but for the life of me I can't seem to get that. I thought DH was for Dead Husband and SO was for Sex Object. I am not computer savvy....LOL

    HAHAHA, I consider myself a pretty computer-savvy person and these abbreviations were new to me. I had to search on here to figure out what they meant.
