Do you write in ALL CAPS?

If so, WHY? I do not understand why some people feel the need to do this.

  • I know of one lady that did it because she had very poor eyesight and all caps is easier for her to read...

  • I used to when I first got on this site and I notice people kept telling me it was rude. Well they were saying it indirectly. I kept right on doing it until my sister asked me why was I yelling at you all, so I stopped. Ive been clean for 3 weeks now.

  • Sometimes inexperienced typists find it challenging to hit the shift key when typing. As they gain more experience, this will become automatic to them.
