how, if you're really used to the internet, when somebody types IN ALL CAPS, that you actually scream it out loud in your mind. Like I went to this thread

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1079323

and I just felt like the dude was some babbling idiot who was screaming at me non stop. I find it kind of funny, but also unusual in that's how our mind has trained us to react.

Thoughts?

I do this aswell, in that case I didn't but I usually take all uppercase to mean shouting.

lol yea i always read caps as if the person is screaming their head off. even worse when the person says right after 'wups caps lock'. then i have to try and reread it without imagining them screaming like morons

I don't do this.


You mean you don't scream it in your head? See, I'd imagine that would be the norm, but I know a lot of people actually consider it rude to type in all caps, and there's got to be some reason for that... I really went in there and as I was reading I realized I was shouting inside my head. It wasn't till I thought about it that I could read it without doing that.

Or what's even stranger, like when my mom first got text messaging, sometimes she would leave caps lock on, and she'd send me messages like "DO YOU WANT TO GO TO WENDY'S?",
and I'd think, "who the **** is wendy and why are you so pissed at her?!"

WAT NO I OBVIOSLY DONT SPEND ENOUGH TIEM ON THE INTERNET

Oops caps lock sorry.

On a serious note, I hate it when people do that. I don't imagine it as being screamed, but I immediately envisage some drooling moron in front of their keyboard, typing in uppercase because they think it draws more attention.

And The People Who Type Like This For Some Reason Make Me Think Of Some Medieval Bard Reciting Some Epic Poetry.
