OMG WHY DOES EVERYONE TALK IN CAPS LOCK!?!

I'm sorry I can't handle it. Why?! People please! I beg you. Do you not realize that TALKING LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME is like screaming at the top of your lungs constantly?

  • It bugs me too... I'm sure it's a matter of preference to do so, apparently quite a few like it -- but I can't help but imagine that person at a gathering who has no volume control and always talks way too loud, who blurts inappropriate things and probably spits a little when they speak because they're speaking too forcefully all the time... the kind of person other people try to avoid. I guess as long as I can understand the question (some questions don't have all-caps but are incoherent to say the least) it's all good. ;-)

  • When people type in all caps it always makes me think of Steve Carrell on Anchorman when he just randomly screams LOUD NOISES!

    I can handle people typing in all caps but when they TyPe LiEk DiS it really annoys me.

  • Yeah It Drives Me Crazy When Someone Capitalizes The First Letter Of Every Word. Why? Don't They Realize They Are Giving Themselves More Work? I HATE THE ALL CAPS TOO! IT IS QUITE ANNOYING!

  • or what about the ones who refuse to use the caps button at all even if they are typing i or somebody's name or the ones that put a period.and no space and just keep going.how does that give you a visual cue that a new sentence is starting?
