>>i normally use caps because it's easier to type and read.

Well, actually, lowercase is vastly easier to read than uppercase (especially with serif typefaces)--I remember that from my days as a magazine editor. And it's a standard convention in fiction that uppercase is used for yelling in dialogue--I saw an example tonight when I was reading a chapter book to my daughters at bedtime. It doesn't have anything to do with "computer nonsense," although I might wonder if you have an Apple II if the whole message is upper case. :->

Still, I think we should do our best to be nice and try to take the quirks of others in stride. Gently reminding people to move beginner posts to the other board is the way to go.
