Well, some of you might recall this thread, where I asked MAGICIAN to stop. Somehow I missed his response (and Esemes) until a couple of days ago, but decided to drop the issue. A quick search of Phil's Fresh Alloy postings found at least three instances where he'd been asked previously, despite his claim that mine was the first. As for the response that it helps blind people, well....assuming that he meant "legally blind", I have two questions:

1. Why wouldn't they simply increase the font size to make it readable.
2. Why in the name of <insert your deity>, would they be interested in reading a car forum since they CAN'T DRIVE???

I admit that I know nothing about that handicap, so if I'm wrong, please accept my apology in advance, and educate me...I'm all EARS.

I SET MINE TO 'BEEP' WHEN I CLICK IT TO CAPS LOCK (OR UNLOCK)

IN MY [beep] line of work, i use all caps, an oftentimes forget to switch back over....

i also have a member on my gsxr forum that types exclusively in caps, but i find no harm done in it...... ((kinda makes me think hes a very outspoken guy, i guess......))

i try to save caps when i wanna EMPHASIZE a word or idea......

I have mine mapped to the "Control" key (we use that a lot in Linux/Unix). Doing that's a one-liner in a shell script.

No, it's actually more difficult to read, and long been the standard since before most of you every even heard of the Internet. It's not something that we made up here...if you post to nearly any message board, you're likely to hear the same.

I hate seeing all caps when reading stuff that's typed. The funny thing is that when I am writing by hand I always write in all caps... go figure.

Are you by chance an engineer? Many years ago when I was in school, that was one thing they drilled into us, was to always write everything in CAPS. I'm the same as you, in that even today everything I write is in CAPS. It's a hard habit to break. Not even sure that I can write in longhand anylonger.

Nope... not an engineer. I just noticed early on that my printing in caps looked better than my handwriting or writing upper/lower.
