What's the deal...

...with people typing in all caps lock. I know it's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things but it's "cyber shouting", lol!

Just wondering why so many people choose to TYPE EVERYTHING IN UPPER CASE AND APPEAR ANGRY EVEN WHEN THEY'RE NOT?

  • I move on to the next post whenever someone types in all caps. It hurts my eyes to read it. Sometimes I'll emphasize a word or 2 buy capitalizing the word, but not the whole post.

  • I'd like to know the answer to this myself. Not only that, but it's hard to read anyway!

  • What About When They Capitalize Every Word In The Sentence? That Drives Me More Crazy Than All Caps.

  • I have a hard time seeing. and I do this sometimes. Mostly because when I am on some other website I forget to turn off caps.
