    STILL HERE, TYPING CAPS!

    WELL-WELL-WELL. I AM THE IMMATURE ONE HERE, DONT THINK SO! ALL I DID WAS USE CAPS, AND NOW I GET INSULTED BY A PERSON I HAVE NEVER MET. MAYBE THIS GROUP ARE THE ONES WHO NEED TO LEARN COURTESY AND MATURITY. AND IN NO WAY DO I CONSIDER TYPING IN CAPS TO BE SHOUTING, THATS JUST DUMB. THIS IS JUST A ONLINE FORUM, NOTHING ELSE. THERE IS NOTHING AT STAKE! IF I TYPE IN CAPS, WHAT HAPPENS? NOTHING HAPPENS! I MIGHT GET KICKED OUT OF HERE, BUT NO ONE WILL BE CAUSED ANY HARM BY IT. I WAS EXCITED TO BE A VIKINGS FAN, AND I PLAN ON STILL BEING A VIKINGS FAN. GROW UP!

    Well lets see........

    Besides the obvious which you have apparently been told before that it is considered shouting, it is a rule, it is common courtesy...... ...there are some other reasons.

    One is you will appear less like a Challenged Hillybilly Lover. I mean that is important. Especially when you are a Challenged Hillybilly Lover much like yourself. To be able to hit one key and hide the fact that you eat boogers and fling poo at your parents is amazingly simple and worth the effort.

    Two well I dont have a #2 I just wanted to call you a Challenged Hillybilly Lover.

    Are you new to the internet?
    I'm starting to wonder if that's true.
    Because it is a well-accepted piece of Netiquette that typing in all caps is the equivalent of shouting.

    http://www.learnthenet.com/english/html/09netiqt.htm

    We expect other drivers to observe the rules of the road. The same is true as we travel through cyberspace. That's where netiquette, a term coined for either network etiquette or Internet etiquette comes in handy. Here are a few pointers to guide you through your online communications:

    Avoid writing e-mail or posting messages in newsgroups, forums, blogs and other online venues using all capital letters.
    IT LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE SHOUTING! Not only that, it's difficult to read.
    This was published in 1995.
    TWELVE years ago:
    http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1855.txt
    - Use mixed case.
    UPPER CASE LOOKS AS IF YOU'RE SHOUTING.
    You can continue to feel like your Paris Hilton and being unfairly persecuted, or you can realize that you're 100% wrong and learn from it.


    Your choice.

    Why even bother with this moron.
    Let him rot in hell or play with himself in the basement or both.

    Re: STILL HERE, TYPING CAPS!

    Its a rule!!!! Can't you understand that? Why do you think that you, a complete newb, can come in here and expect people to change rules for you? Your the minority and last time I checked the majority rules. Why do you find it so difficult to just not post in caps?


    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    Typing in caps is considered shouting pretty much everywhere on the net.
    It isn't a new idea by any means, and certainly didn't originate here at PP.O.

    It isn't hard to get out of hell.
    Just start following the rules, and you may be given another chance...
