There have been too many off these lately. If you started a thread with the subject line in ALL CAPS, please return to your original post and edit the subject line.

I know everyone wants their threads to be read, but yelling is rude on the internet.

I'm sorry, I wasn't yelling, just being lazy and copying and pasting, I will fix mine... :(

How about the posts themselves? I understand one or two lines with all caps, but a paragraph or more is hard to read.

Certainly there's no place for it in posts. I was just noticing that some members who should know better were starting to yell in their subject lines. It's an easy mistake to make, if you want to get people's attention.

Rob need I go back to my hundreds of posts and change them?
I have done much yelling and screaming in the past.

thanks for helping to prove my point though ROB!!! :lol:

the point being that we HEAR with our EYES and SEE with our EARS.

(and why does the 5th Gospel of Thomas keep harping about the EARS? what are we failing to see? :wink: )

Indeed.

What about "****You're__ALL__Going__to__DIE!!!!*****?" Isn't that just as bad?

You have got to start talking in English, or the majority won't be able to understand a word of what you're saying.

I deleted the Chinese user. The email address, and the posts that he/she replied to, indicate to me that they are not here for 2012.
