...For emphasis, my dear man, for emphasis.
You see the italic fonts are not too definitive in font,
and the stupid icons are too much like blunt instruments.

I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN. I'VE ONLY EVER DONE IT A FEW TIMES. TO ME, TYPE IN CAPS LOCK IS LIKE A GIGANTIC RANT. THE TEXT EQUIVALENT TO A MASSIVE BREAKDOWN OF EPIC PROPORTIONS. THOUGH I DO BELIEVE THAT SOMETIMES IT CAN BE A GOOD WAY TO HIGHLIGHT A CERTAIN WORD OR PHRASE, MAYBE FOR EMPHASIS, IF SOMEONE GOES OVERBOARD WITH IT I SAY WALK THE PLANK SO TO SPEAK.

I agree OP. If one looks at my opening paragraph without actually reading it, they might assume it's a rant or worse.

But if one uses it as a header on its own line before typing it can be visually appealing imo. Off topic but another thing that irks me is when someone sends an email in all caps lock. Even if it's a lighthearted conversation, it doesn't add much impact.
