Oops. ALL CAPS

Posted by virgo1952 @virgo1952, Apr 11, 2020

I was going through different sections of the mayo clinic connection and happen upon the guidelines. ALL CAPS is a hard habit for me to break. I apologize for not knowing and what might have appeared as insensitive. Will break my bad habit.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Just Want to Talk group.

All caps are usually interpreted as yelling or screaming.

I know. I read that, thus the apology. Probably, i used them previously like somebody uses emoj’s. Those can be annoying too, but I understand from the guidelines how they are viewed on this site. Thanks 😳

If that’s the worst thing you do then you are ahead of me!
We are all mistake makers🤭

I don’t imagine this comment will go over well but it’s only ”my” opinion.
My friend told me long ago,
Sorry if my typing hurts your ears
I don’t speak with my fingers
I don’t hear with my eyes.
I don’t believe someone should be judged by their style of typing when yelling may not be the writers intention.

@jakedduck1 I also am not offended by all CAPS. I sometimes put a word in caps to emphasize it since on this forum we cannot underline or put it in bold print.
