      Spammers, spammers and more spammers.

      I have one guy emailing my inbox every day.

      Subject line is always in Caps.

      He doesn't have an email unscribe, I just delete
      it first. It always sticks out.

    I have been ACCUSED of typing in all caps, but I haven't since about 1984. And THAT is because I used an APPLE II which had an old style computer keyboard.

    Like Kay said, START OVER!

    BTW I am NOT getting andy younger. I am about 25 years older than I was when I typed in all caps! MY GOD, it has been almost TWENTY SIX YEARS! 2010-1984!

      They say that eye sight goes with age, so it would make sense that people type in caps to make it easier to see the text.

      Also, older people(who have just discovered computers) would be less likely to be familiar with the 'rule' that all caps means yelling.

      Makes sense to me!

    Mostly it is new computer people emailing others and not understanding the basic cap rule. It could be someone that is using it to yell at you as well. If experienced the latter is true.

    oh and by the way I DON'T GO BY OTHER PEOPLE'S RULES.

    WHO MADE THIS "RULE"????? I DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE THEM WHOEVER THEY ARE.

    I DO NOT YELL - I EMPHASIZE.

    i really like baby letters but there are those that object to that and they are OLD.

    Poor little dear, you sure know how to 'win friends and influence people'.

    WAY!

    Probably it's a disabled guy with only one arm. Can you imagine how difficult it is to hold down the <Shift> key with one finger while trying to press the letter key with another finger of the same hand?

      Daniel is partly right.

      I mentioned this in the newsletter once (the shouting thing), and got responses from a bunch of people telling me that it was because their eyesight wasn't so good due to age.

      I explained to them how they could change font sizes in their browsers and email software. You'd have thought I'd given them a million dollars and a pony from their reactions.

    What really scares me is the fact that whan I'm ready to hang up my boots and retire, Daniel's generation are going to be running the world.

    <shudder>

    If you started this thread as a joke, then well done, hats off, etc. At the least, it'll get a nomination for Dumbest Post Of The Year. From someone who contributes more than their fair share of dumb posts (me), take that as a compliment.

    If you're serious though, then refer to my opening sentence.

    <shudder again>

    If Pete Townshend (now an old man) rewrote "My Generation" about young Daniel's mob in charge of the world, part of it might go something like this:

    "Things they say sound awful dumb,
    Hope I die before their time comes".

    My husband writes like that, people give him a hard time all the time over it but he doesn't care. He tells me "I don't care what people say, I write the way I want to write and I find it looks better". I try to tell him it means he's yelling on the other end but again he just doesn't care. Oh and he's not old, not to me anyway...
