ALL CAPS FOR EMPHASIZING NOT YELLING

Recommended Posts

Somebody recently mentioned to me (AGAIN) that ALL CAPS on something now-a-days means YELLING.

I am sorry to everyone on these forums if you thought that the ALL CAPS on stuff in my posts are yelling.

I am just getting old. Back in my day, the CAPS meant to emphasize something not yelling.

I am sure that is PROGRAMMED into my DNA now so you will always see CAPS. Not Yelling though :)

:D  Nobody will remember that, and others likely don't care if you got an ass-chewing for caps-usage.  :D

How about writing "Caps != Yell" on your forum profile photo?   Then we might remember your caps policies.

Note to others:  I wasn't the one who misunderstood Mackey's caps... as yelling.  I'm just typing this comment... cuz... I'm lonely and bored.  :)

Sorry ya got misunderstood, MK24.  People are rather reactive these days... especially in social chat-rants.

I sincerely hope the emotions calmed and the acquaintanceship was salvaged... after you explained yourself.  (hug)

Try bold text if it is an issue.

Says the person with the ALL CAPS user name :D.  You might try an all caps bold superscript.  Probably drive the fuzz nuts, and people will just have to read. e.g:  I JUST GOT PREGNANT FROM THAT VIDEO
