i think no matter how you type your message it will come across to different people in different ways. there is no way to determine what the other person really means unless you are face to face with them. Emails/texts etc are constantly being misinterpreted.

I agree with you 100% on this. : )

And while on WI, people cant tell weather you're mad or excited. (: They cant tell your tone. : ) Please keep THAT in mind. (sorry if you think thats 'poking' LOL xD)

When people post their thread titles or make posts using all caps, it's like your being yelled at. For example, let's pretend your new and posted a thread in the wrong section. Would you rather someone posting: HEY! THIS THREAD DOESN'T BELONG HERE! IT GOES IN THE [...] SECTION!
Or: Hey, this goes in the [...] section.

Which seemed friendlier? I think the second one for sure.

And when you make thread titles all caps, it makes you seem desperate for views, or that you're trying to get attention. Ya know what I'm saying?

Instead of doing Caps, do Bold, Italic, or underlined. Or maybe use Font Three if it's important...

Just remember: All caps is internet yelling, and no one likes being yelled at.
I agree. It's only OK if it was by accident like sometimes you press caps lock and it turned caps off,and when you pressed it again it turned caps on again. If you don't get it here's an example:
"dO YOU LIKE CHEESE?" notice how the first letter is not caps?
Rep! Oops! Have to spread some rep around first!

I agree, it can make some people feel uncomfortable and make your posts sound angrier than they actually are. You have to remember that you can't hear the tone of someone's voice through the internet, so some people may interpret things like that differently than the original poster meant for them to be interpreted.
It is much easier to just use all lower case or bold if it's something important or italics for extra emphasis. (:

The only time I post in all caps is like one word, not whole posts.

I don't think Capitals are yelling.
Plus, your post with automatically go to lowercase letters if it's like that anyway.
