Funny, but is it true or not? I guess, not. But i wonder why some people use only capital letters in their discussion? Daily i am seeing one minimum. Even a couple of my friends here are no exception. Can you please share the reasons?

No, anyone who does this will earn less. I won't respond to a discussion which uses all capital letter in the heading or in the text. I'm sure I am not the only person who won't take part in those discussions. Using all capitals letters is looked on as shouting on the internet, and no-one wants to be shouted at. There is no need for anyone to use capitals to make a point, because we have the myLot code which allows us to use bold, italic, or underline if we want to, and we can express our anger , disapproval or annoyance ...

i hate it!! i dont think it helps if the body of the post is in caps.. to me it makes it annoying and hard to read.. but if the title/subject line is in caps or partially i think it helps.. ive pretty much stopped answering any post that is totally in caps now.. im sure im not alone

All caps is supposed to indicate a shout. The person who uses all caps might think that if he/she shouts at you, you are more likely to pay attention. They may just be lazy. Shifting takes a little more effort. Or they, like me, have a keyboard that does not always work properly when shifting back and forth between lower and upper case.

I don't think you would earn more that way. Typing in capital letters is considered shouting on the internet and may be considered rude. I know it's not allowed in some forums. I don't know about here. I just don't think they would pay more for that.

I don't think so. Even utherwise, it is grametically incorrect. Well, for a quote or some thing of that kind where using capital letters becomes necessary one should use capital letter. I wonder if this is one way to show that they are different in some way.

Typing in all capital letters is against the guidelines and can result in the post being deleted. From the "Don't" section of the myLot discussion guidelines: "Use all-caps or excessive punctuation." http://www.mylot.com/o/guidelines.aspx

[b]hi snakequeen! i guess this isn't true at all. earning here really depends on the content of your discussion as well as the quality of the responses each of us make in discussions we tend to comment on. it is simply like posting a reply in smaller cases like what i am doing. if i have answered here in your discussion in all capital letters then ill be earning the same amount as with the small caps i type in. happy posting and happy mylotting![/b]
