Oops. ALL CAPS

Posted by virgo1952 @virgo1952, Sat, Apr 11 11:18am

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.

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.
