Post subject: moan - sorry if I offend anyone
Sorry I don't want to appear a moaning old cow, but I've notice there are a few posts lately that have all been typed in capital letters, it might just be me, but I find these really hard to read and it take me ages to undestand them. Also in forum protocol typing in capitals is the equivalent of shouting (obviously there are times when shouting is entirely appropriate), If no-one else feels the same just ignore me, but if anyone else has trouble could we all just make an effort not to do it.

Thank you xx

I'm with you on this one - I don't even read anything that is all in capitals because it is too difficult to read.

I find capitals and abbreviations of words hard to understand. When people use u for you, I have to read it twice. I hate to say, but sometimes I have to read a post many times to understand it, especially those written in an 'accent' (I'm american so i don't understand what they're trying to say sometimes)

I doin't mind the 'txt spk' and well known abbreviations, but the all-in-caps does bug me, cos i read it as shouting. tbh I just don't read caps posts.

maybe we should all drop a nice polite pm to people who do it habitually? its most likely just that they aren't forum trolls like the rest of us, so don't understand what capslock is for Very Happy

when someone types in capitals, if anyone who is sight impaired it is very difficult to read, or so we have been told at work by our residents.

Just thought I would add that
