    Back in the Bronze age, when the Internet was young and the cool kids used Usenet for discussions, typing in ALL CAPS MEANT THAT YOU WERE SHOUTING.

    Some of us old fogeys still think that typing in ALL CAPS MEANS THAT YOU ARE SHOUTING. So, if y'all who think about typing your thread title in all caps COULD BE SO NICE AS TO RECONSIDER THAT AND REFRAIN FROM HITTING CAPS LOCK, WE'D BE REALLY, REALLY GRATEFUL. Because typing with caps lock on is really, really annoying to us.

    Thank you - sorry - THANK YOU!!! in advance.

    And I'd advise you not to get me started on using Capitalization Of Every Word In A Sentence...

    ok let's make ee cummings proud.

    and give no thought to visually impaired or simple newbie users who happen to use capslock, or are connecting via a telex terminal. which only had caps.

    You'd hate Snap Chat with all the add-ons.

    This thread is kind of a waste of electrons....

    And ... out of morbid curiosity, all I can think about now is to wonder how many electrons are attached to this thread.

    (Though, for what it's worth, it's very important to type in standard form. No ee cummings, no all caps, no camel caps. Just standard type. It has to do with the way our eyes consume the characters. It's more difficult to process type in non-standard form.)
