    I'm also with JW. I also couldn't agree more Mike. The only reason for that is if the Caps Lock button is jammed which I doubt happens.
    Thanks for the post Mike!!!:wink::big_smile:

    You know I have a major problem with people telling me that all caps is yelling. I have always used all caps until about a week ago when i got a private message asking me not to because it was yelling....:cool2::angry: I have to use it at work and I always used it on the computer until it I guess offended people. You know I have always tried to do the right thing and change a lot of things I done in the past to get a long with people. but I feel that this is a stupid little pet peeve you have and a couple of other people. I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO WHAT I WANT TO DO AND NOT FEEL LIKE I'M HURTING YOUR FEELINGS. You have upset me, because I have to change the way I have always done things. You know it is just like the CPR thing. We ran a couple of good people off talking about CPR. Well I for one will tell you that if it is not hurting you or me or anyone else you can get over it. Don't have to read my post or you can leave..:angry: Which ever one you want. i'm sorry but i feel like this is an enfringement.. Something so stupid as this. WTF AGAIN IF I MADE YOU MADE I SORRY BUT YOU ALSO HAVE MADE ME MAD.

    I dont see what it matters. Who cares if someone wants to use all caps. What about the ones that dont use caps at all is that wispering. Some might have to say speak up I can hear you. Dont let little things like this bother you. You could miss out on some good times and post.

    You may want to re-read the FAQ's.....

    Its in #11.

    Posting / Chatting Guidlines:

    There are common courtesies to follow when posting or in the BOC chat. Following them will put you, in other members' eyes, as being cordial, polite, and a nice person. Some of those courtesies are as follows:

    A. Don't type all in CAPS. That's considered shouting.

    http://www.catfish1.com/forums/faq.php?faq=vb_faq#faq_new_faq_rule

    Not trying to offend you at all, just explaining where that caps thing came from. I figured I'd copy/paste to the FAQ's and post the link.

    I didn't say it was mandatory. I just quoted what the FAQ's said about it. I never noticed that you typed in all caps??? It doesn't bother me when some people do it but you get a ton of people doing it and it gets kinda aggravating. Its just a common courtesy for the 20,000+ members on here. Some people it may bother greatly, others not at all. If its a post I'm interested in reading, Caps or not, I'm still gonna read it. If I'm not interested I'm not gonna read it anyway so it doesn't matter a whole lot.....:confused2::wink::smile2:

    When I joined the BOC back in 06,I thought the guideline of no caps. [being percieved as YELLING] was totally absurd. I still think it is ,but anyone who types in all caps seems to me does it to EMPHASISE what they are typing. ,anyway my skin is way thicker than to whine about the way someone types.

    upper case

    lower case

    farting the case

    it dont matter lol

    i have had several ppls else where chew me out for not using "propers sentance structure and not using periods, capitals for new sentances ect ect"

    i type the way i type as i dont like looking for the shift key, ON a LAPTOP is not always functuational or practical for my big ole hands

    soo i start a new line, sure it might be annoying and such but it is easier for me the typer to do, some people have capital letters for passwords or have kids that use it and they just get into the habit of it being on and after a while they dont even notice that it is on, is just second nature


    case sa ra sa ra

    TO EACH THEIR OWN and yes i did shout that for the whole world to see!!!

    potato patato some use all spincasts some use all baitcaster some can use both

    case sa ra sa ra

    Everybody most certainly has a right to type anyway they choose.

    Same way I have a right to skip over their posts, which I do most of the time. If I find it hard to read, I skip past it. No big deal. Of course, I can only surmise that if you type in all upper case, or never use at least reasonable spelling & punctuation, that it is your intention to have folks ignore you.

    That said, I misspell intentionally all the time, it's part of my image.:wink:
