I've noticed an increasing tendency TO POST MESSAGES IN CAPITALS!!!!

As using capitals in text is the equivalent of SHOUTING it's getting very noisy round here.

Maybe some forum members are not familiar with this convention. It's pretty universal. Regardless, could I make a plea for polite, non capitalised, text? Please?

Yes - I've just tried to edit the post but it does not give me the option of editing the title. Sorry.

Who makes that rule? Better to eliminate the all caps in things like IMHO, except when spelling words has become too tedious to the elderly. LMAO LOL

You guys now all caps has nothing to do with font size?

The rule against all caps is part of the package of rules. Use the odd space. Use periods,question marks and maybe even commas. Line spaces. Paragraphs.

Hola Keith - I think you have deliberately chosen the smallest font available. I had to get out the magnifying glass to read it!!! Cheers
hello st Michel 2,

this font size was not chosen just for its size but also it demands good eyesight and concentration, I was told it is new times roman whisper font. I am in total agreement with the redhaired lady from Australia size is not important, silence is golden compared to the isley brothers hit song of 1959.................................

You know you make me wanna shout (shout)
Look my hand's jumpin' (shout)
Look my heart's thumpin' (shout)
Throw my head back (shout)
Come on now (shout)
Don't forget to say you will (shout)
Yeah, don't forget to shout (shout)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


you can hear a pin drop these words are so quiet.
if you have problems reading this post then maybe specsavers is your next port of call ..........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................cap that.

Guys - I know everyone wants their posts to stand out but please let that be by superb writing and useful information and insights.

The use of multi colours and excessive use of capitals, bold and italic etc is discouraged. Please use these options sparingly if you use them at all.

Again if you wish to report posts which try and stand out just by lurid typography please feel free to do so.

Thank you.

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply excessive use of these, but occasional to make a point clear. I just 'prettied' up the post to show the possibilities were there. Mea Culpa.

This thread could be a case study in a textbook on passive aggression. :)
