hehe. It doesn’t bother me a lot. I do feel like they are yelling at me though! I feel like i lean back a bit and squint my eyes a little…lol like someone who would lean back and cover there ears a little if they were in person shouting.

I completely agree with you, but find it far more infuriating when someone types lYkE DiS.

@woodwindwaker:  I agree 100% Caps should be used in moderation/for effect and nothing else.

@TequilaSunrise:  When I read things in all caps I read it in a “yelling” voice in my head.

Since we’re in the topic of typing…I dislike abbreviations..such OP, Fiance, Maid/Matron of Honor, etc. Spell it out! This is not texting.

I agree. I have a client that always emails in all caps and I always think she’s upset or yelling at me and it drives me crazy!

@AmeliaBedelia:  Ewww, I think that’s worse. My brain tries to go between normal and shouting. Haha. That’s not even easy to do…why do it at all?!

@indibee:  I know! And people seem to do it quickly! I’m like, what? I mean it literally took me 5 times (or more?) as long to type that!! I don’t even get it.

Also – as per THE YELLING TEXTS. I had a friend in high school that always texted like that and even wrote in all-caps. I was like wow, what just happened?

@woodwindwaker:  I agree. Caps are appropriate for things like “HELP, HELP, MY HOUSE IS ON FIRE CALL 911!!!!”, not “BEES HELP ME I CAN’T FIND A GOOD NECKLACE TO GO WITH MY DRESS!!!!!1!!!1!”

Not to mention the “HELP ME O BEE WAN KENOBI, YOU’RE MY ONLY HOPE” posts that don’t even give you any inkling of what the problem might be about, so you click on it and it turns out it’s a question about finding a Wiccan officiant in Tiny Town, USA who also moonlights as a caterer/photographer/scuba diver, or any other super specific request that 99% of the population can’t help with.

@Meowkers: I have a Business Contact who always types the Important Words with a Capital Letter at the Beginning. I Guess she thinks it’s a Good way of adding Emphasis, but I think it’s Totally Unprofessional.

@AmeliaBedelia:  “That took me entirely too long. I felt ridiculous.”  <—- Ahahaha!

I also totally hate it when people write all in caps.  To be perfectly honest, I do not read those posts.
