ROCKIN THE CAPSLOCK

Post by clocksnmirrors » Tue May 21, 2013 10:06 am

I KNOW THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO FEEL LIKE ALL CAPS IS THE EQUIVALENT OF SHOUTING.

TO THEM I SAY "POPPYCOCK". FINE AND DANDY TO HAVE YOUR OPINION, BUT NOT EVERYONE SHARES IT

I HAPPEN TO BE SOMEONE WHO ENJOYS THE APPEARANCE AND EASY READABILITY OF CAPITALIZED LETTERS.

SO BACK OFF YOU CAPSLOCK NAZIS!



THANK YOU AND HAVE A NICE DAY 8)

I find it hard to read with all caps. Same with no punctuation.

This is a picture I just took of my keyboard. I say, "Fuck you caps lock! You are an evil bastard!" I have to look at the keys when I type, so an accidental hit of that frickin button and I'm typing like the second comment for a long long time. And usually there's no option to correct that... So I bust 'em out.

YOU SEE?

DO YOU SEE WHAT THESE CAPSLOCK NAZIS HAVE DONE TO YOU? LIVING IN FEAR OF OUSTER FROM THE COMMUNITY.... VANDALIZING YOUR OWN PROPERTY JUST FOR THE SAKE OF VISUAL CORRECTNESS?

WHERE DOES THE MADNESS END?????

I used to frequent Chat in college, and although a quick typist, I habitually stared at my keyboard more than my screen and would hit "Enter" before I looked at what I'd typed. I once speculated as to the effects of eating Cheetos and browsing pr0n:

Every time I see appalling grammar or dreadful spelling (more than 2 errors per sentence) a little part of me dies. Given the amount of time I spend on eplaya and Facebook I will not have a long life.

I am not greatly irritated by sloppy grammar or punctuation in a forum, or chat. People type quickly, and they get their point across. What does bother me is getting an email at work that reads like a bad chat room post. No capitalization, no punctuation, and abbreviations from phone text style. I am always tempted to just forward it back to the original sender, after correcting it.
CAPS LOCK. YES, IT READS TO ME LIKE SHOUTING. I FEEL LIKE I'M REPEATING SOMETHING TO A PERSON WHO WILL NOT WEAR THEIR HEARING AIDS. I OFTEN WRITE IN ALL CAPITALS IN NOTES AT WORK, JUST SO PEOPLE WILL CERTAINLY BE ABLE TO READ WHAT I'VE WRITTEN. IN HAND WRITING, IT DOESN'T SEEM LIKE SHOUTING. GO FIGURE!

THANK YOU! I CAN'T REMEMBER WHEN I BEGAN HAND WRITING IN ALL CAPS. I THINK IT HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE COMIC BOOKS I ALWAYS READ.

IT'S CERTAINLY MORE LEGIBLE
