They not only LOOK HORRIBLE but they’re often a substitute for REASONED ARGUMENT. This is because they are generally employed by people who, rather than fleshing out their point, resort to SHOUTING AT EACH OTHER.


But seriously, do you really feel like someone is shouting at you when they speak in caps?

I think you should consider yourself blessed if this is on your mind and considered an annoyance. Personally the intentional misspelling of words is a greater peril to our society than choosing to type in capitals. Whatever you interpret from someone writing in capitals is literally IN YOUR HEAD and trivial. i.e. they could have just pressed caps lock.

So my answer is absolutely not. Instead my question to you is should ATS crack down on pointless threads?


I think the majority of them are pointless.

I think I will go to your profile right now and maybe that will help me out.

What important threads do you post my friend? I will take a look.

Feel free to take a look at my profile,there is some good stuff there

Maybe they should ban users with unpronounceable and silly usernames.

THIRD LINE

FOURTH LINE.

Now hate on me bro, since you seem to hate everything done by some members.

vvv





Didnt you already put your two cents in?

The Punch doesnt ban mambers. It simply asksthem to resubmit the post in a more civilised lower case. Thats all.

Seems like a good idea to me.



Germanicus, I often use caps to emphasize a word.

If you feel it's your place to complain about my style, then I feel I can now complain about your horrible spelling skills.

It's EASY to read all caps but it's HARD to read something written by someone with no grasp of the written English language. You often fail to use apostrophes when you write possessive nouns, and you use them seemingly EVERY TIME when you write a plural noun.

Don't tell me "maybe we're more civilized down here in Australia." If that were the case, you guys would all know how to spell. Not sure why you have to try and make it a hateful conversation, but to me this is MUCH MORE disrespectful than someone using caps for emphasis. Why the hypocrisy?



Hey twinkle toes, It is one persons request. He is not representing Australia. HaveP

some common dog doodles and be a little reasonable. There is far too much of this illogical black/white thinking on ATS. Good grief!


P


These were sarcastic remarks based on your fellow Aussie's comment "maybe we're just more civilized down here in Australia." I'm sorry this escaped you. The misunderstanding must stem from the fact that your country is so highly civilized, and mine isn't.


My apologies.

I guess we can agree to disagree on the SHOUTING.

CIVILIZED? Australia civilized. Not on your life mate!

We wouldn't want to be civilized! What! Like the British. With afternoon tea and cucumber sandwiches.

Or like the Great Roman Empire with catamites and sticking swords in peoples bellies!

Civilized? Us? Go away! No mate, not us

ROFL

Wow,I would have said my spelling was poor but not horrible. Im so very sorry it offends you. Please accept my humble apologies. And I assure you I mean no disrespect
Or to make it a "hateful" conversation. I had no idea this would upset so many of you people that like to shout.

I think it is more likely you guys look for threads to insult people in. Glad I could help you out with that. I hope you have validated your 'intelligence' in some way.

And the 'more civilized in Australia' joke had a smiley after it. I was tryingto let you guys know it was a joke. Sorry you missed that. Seems I have upset you. Im so very sorry.

I guess The Punch and I have a different opinion on the whole YELLING thing.

Have a great day. You seem like a real nice fella hey

why stop at capitol letters, Many lower case letters and, for that matter numbers and punctuation marks are down right annoying too! Those pointy things and also some of the things above the number key really don't do anything but add bad Karma to any correspondence. ***BUT NOT THE ASTERICK. Leave that one alone, that one is my favorite!

I say.....Crack down on them all( except the asterick of course) and let god sort 'em out!

PS sorry got a little confused and ended my response with something I read on the back of a special forces t-shirt.

I don't think god needs to get involved that's what the federal goverment is for. Or whatever the Aussie version of that is. (kangaroo court?)

Well I'm back to communicating like everyone else since my asterick based writting technique seem to have failed to convey my true thoughts and emotions


to bad, I thought it held great potential and very possibly the key to the next step in the evolution of mankind!

I would like to thank Germanicus for jumpstrarting me on this endeavour. Lesser minds like myself are often prodded toward greatness by the genius of others


Carpe cheedar!

I just noticed nobody has mentioned I have two uppercase words in my signature. That would have been clever.

In my defence,the words are not directed at any individual
