Do you ever type with CAPS on, while posting at My Lot?

Ordinarily, I try to make sure not to type with CAPS on, while posting at My Lot. Supposedly it means that you are "shouting" the captialized words. Not sure if that is true. I think it's supposed to be rude. I am never offended when I see that someone on My Lot has typed all their words in CAPS. I figure that they must have done so accidentally and did not know until too late to retype their comment. Who knows why people do things. Do you ever type in all CAPS accidentally while posting at My Lot?

Well normally, if you type in caps for no good reason, people think you are being rude. :P So no, I use my caps sparingly.=)

Except for the first word in a sentence and the names that need be written in caps, I usually dont. But I see no reason if someone post in big letters. Maybe accidentally or want his readers to easily read his notes. But sometimes I was not able to correct on some of my spelling too and some tenses because when I write I really do it spontaneously. No problems if someone is using all caps in his mylotting.

Hello beauty queen. I am happy to say that I don't ever type in all caps. I don't like to type in capital letters unless it is the title of the topic, but only the initials of each word. I do not like to read a discussion when it is all typed in capital letters. I would just skip it without getting bothered. lol

Hi Beautiqueen, I don't usually use capitals, because I don't want people to think I'm shouting, he he. but sometimes, when I want to stress an idea, I may use capitals, mainly because I don't have any other means to do it. Sorry if anyone ever felt hurt or offended by my capitals. HAVE A NICE DAY AND HAPPY POSTING!!! (there, I used them!!)

Very much correct. Capitalized writing implies that you are angry or shouting. It all applies to all written communication, specially e-mails, and not only here at MyLot. I always try to be respectful and calm when writing eventhough I'm very angry. I only capitalize words when I want to highlight what I am implying in my sentence.

I sometimes type in all caps, unintentionally of course, and my friends who I sometimes instant message get so upset. They tell me to stop shouting at them, I never understood what the big deal was. I MEAN IT'S KIND OF PRETTY, DON'T YOU THINK?

No I did not use CAPS when I do posting in mylot. I just use normal one, than try to write as much as possible for the topics that I response. SO far I never accidentally type all in CAPS while posting at Mylot. And I always check before I send or press the post response button.

I don't use caps lock when typing, so I don't do this when I'm on MyLot. I will however hold down the shift key for a specific word if I want to emphasize what I am saying as italics aren't allowed. I don't see all caps as shouting, never have, though it can be hard on the eyes, especially if there is a lot to read. :P

i have also seen that people interpret capital letters on the web as equivalent of shouting.So i never use Caps Lock unless of course I want to shout at somebody!

No, I donot type with CAPS on, it does not appropriate. I agree typing IN CAPITAL LETTERS is treated as shouting. I have also seen on a very few occasions, that a response was typed in CAPITAL letters.

It could mean shouting. However, I usually just use it to make a point or trying to highlight certain words when trying to make a point. It really mostly depends on the tone of the post. You can tell when someone is yelling and when they aren't ... usually.

No, because all capitals seem you are angry and it is not polite to type in such a way.
