<<i agree, i found the same thing when i first came to the FOOL. i normally use caps because it's easier to type and read. but a bunch of whiners think i'm screaming or some sort of computer nonsense. >>

The use of either all caps or no caps at all is evidence of an attitude of rude disregard, disrespect, and arrogance to your reader. It is a way of saying, "My time is so important that I can't be bothered with making to attempt to hit the shift key or to follow the rules of English writing and grammar---but *your* time and the additional effort it takes for you to read my writing is of no value whatsoever."
