Why do I read with a yelling voice in my head when I read all caps in posts?

It makes me laugh, but it's annoying at the same time.

  • Supposedly typing in all caps means you're yelling.

  • It's part of written communications. If a person were to hand write a letter to you and they wrote a sentence in all caps it would indicate yelling too. It is a device used to communicate emotion in typing so you read it that way because that's what it means.

    So in answer to your question: You read all caps as yelling because you clearly have a good understanding of the written language.
