  • I think it is for convenience of reading it. I personally don't care if people do or not. My bigger pet peeve is misspelled words and bad grammar. lol

  • Nope, believe it or not a lot of people do not know it means yelling. Why not give someone the benefit of the doubt. Not everyone is as internet savvy as you might be :) We all had to start somewhere. Did you know ALL the internet lingo's you know now when you first signed on? :)

  • A lot of people don't know that it means they're yelling. They think that they are making it easier to read (ie. larger) or that they are really really getting their point across. My grandfather types in all caps when he's online because he can see what he's typing better.

  • Why are you yelling at me... LOL

    Your question is typed in ALL caps. Didn't you know that means that you are yelling at me?? LOL

    Seriously, I don't pay any attention to that, so what if it's all caps??? I may use CAPS here and there to help make my point or to make KEY words stand out....

    Often it takes a lot more then letters/words in caps to get me upset, I try to pick up on the "tone" vs if it was written in all caps or not.
