I JUST THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE AN INTERESTING IDEA.
READING TEXT ALL IN CAPS IS PRETTY AWFUL THOUGH AND YOU TEND TO ASSUMANE PEOPLE WHO WRITE THAT WAY ARE MORONS…

IT'S THE INTERNET EQUIVALENT OF CLIMBING ONTO A BARREL IN THE PUBLIC SQUARE AND YELLING WHEN RESPONDING TO SOMEONE IN CONVERSATION.

TRY italics .

THEY'RE FUN!!

WHEN I WAS A KID (LIKE 8 YEARS OLD) AND BAD AT TYPING, I WROTE MY FIRST STORIES ON A COMPUTER IN ALL CAPS. IT WAS JUST EASIER FOR MY LITTLE HANDS TO LEAVE THE CAPS LOCK ON. I CRINGE WHEN I SEE ALL CAPS ON A FLYER AND PERSONALLY PREFER WEBCOMICS WITH MIXED CASES (EVEN THOUGH IT'S NON-STANDARD).

STUDIES HAVE SHOWN IT IS EASIER TO READ TEXT WRITTEN IN MIXED CASES; ALL CAPS IS HARDER TO READ. USING ALL CAPS FOR EMPHASIS CAN MAKE YOUR TEXT HARDER TO READ. IT MAKES SENSE TO PERCEIVE IT AS UNINTELLIGIBLE SCREAMING. TRY bold, italics, OR both. IN MY WEBCOMICS, I USUALLY USE BOLD ITALICS FOR EMPHASIS. CAPS-LOCK IS FOR SOUND EFFECTS.

I'M A TRADITIONALIST AND USE ALL CAPS IN MY COMICS TO HIGHLIGHT THE FACT THAT EVERYONE IS SHOUTING ALL THE TIME. SOME PEOPLE CAN ONLY AFFORD SEATS UP IN THE BALCONY. HOW ARE THEY GOING TO HEAR WHAT'S GOING ON UNLESS EVERYONE IS SHOUTING ALL THE TIME?

LOUD NOISES!

HONESTLY, ONE OF MY BOSSES DOES THIS BECAUSE HE'S ABSENT MINDED ENOUGH TO FORGET THAT THE CAPS LOCK ON, HE'LL TYPE EMAILS TO CLIENTS THIS WAY AND WHEN HE HOLDS SHIFT TO CAPITALIZE A LETTER IT ALWAYS ENDS UP LOWER CASE. WHEN I WORKED WITH HIM MORE REGULARLY AN EASY WAY FOR ME TO TELL THAT HE HAD BEEN ON THE COMPUTER I HAVE TO USE (AN OUTDATED, OVERSTUFFED PIECE OF CRAP) AT 2AM WAS IF I TYPE THE PASSWORD, HIT ENTER AND FIND THE CAPS LOCK HAD BEEN LEFT ON. IT DRIVES ME ABSOLUTELY NUTS.
