    Who else have issue with ALL CAPS?
    (Sorry, doing it on purpose)
    I must be getting old and find this harder to tolerate.
    Seeing Banners with the first line (Name or Subject) being All Caps, and that's fine.
    And then there are some with all 3 lines in Caps - Name, Event, Tagline....

    Then there are people who write in All Caps. Be it emails, FaceBook posts, WhatsApp etc.

    But nothing beats watching TV or movies, with subtitles all in Caps!
    Gosh, what are they thinking?

    Rant over.

    I DO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ALL CAPS. IT'S THE SAME AS SHOUTING AND IS CONSIDERED AGRESSIVE!

    Yup, the only time I use caps is when grammar dictates or if I need to draw the eye to a specific instruction for someone in a lengthy email, even then I prefer to bold but some people don't respond to this.

    There is absolutely no need ever to type something in all caps and post it, it's accepted across the entire interwebs that it is considered shouting and is rude.

    I do agree, that a whole post done in all caps are posts I simply ignore and do not read.

    Exactly! I dont understand why people insist on doing it, although others have voiced out.
    Surely if they want to be heard, they make sure the writing is more reader-friendly. Hence we have emoji :rolleyes::p
    I am currently working on a small project with a small number of people and they want to put-up a banner.
    The "Chief Designer" come out with ALL CAPS and I'm the only one have problem...o_O

    I can handle all caps depending on the type of font. In general it does make things hard to read though.
