View Full Version : WHY DO KOOKS OFTEN WRITE IN ALL-CAPS?
9th July 2004, 02:14 AM
I have noted that all-caps is a fairly sure sign of a kook. I am inspired to ask because of DALTON, but I do not pronounce him a kook - after all, it is behaviour that determines "kookiness", and he could run of with a million bucks tomorrow.
Is it because kooks are so full of themselves that every word they write must be so important that it is worth shouting? Any psychologists around?

SO THEY CAN HEAR ABOVE THE LEVEL OF THE VOICES IN THEIR HEADS.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN.
I THINK IT IS TOO TIRING TO HOLD DOWN THE SHIFT KEY EVERYTIME I WANT TO WRITE IN LOWER CASE.
seriously, how do you do it for some oF THE BIG LONG POSTS I SEE HERE.
maybe i caN leave something heavy on the shift key TO HELP ME WIRTE IN LOWER CSAE.

Similarly, have you ever seen a letter written in green ink by someone that wasn't mad ?

Yes, I have. But those people generally dot their i's with little hearts.
The CAP writers are probably doing it for emphasis, but are not saavy enough to know the best way to emphasize something is to put 12 exclamation points after it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YOU'VE GOT IT ALL WRONG. THEY ARE ACTUALLY OLD SCHOOL COMPUTER GEEKS FROM WHEN DESKTOPS DIDN'T HAVE LOWERCASE LETTERS AND ALL CODING WAS IN CAPS. WE SHOULD MAKE THEM ANSWER QUESTIONS IN COBOL.

It's habit. It's hard to write lower-case letters in crayon, so they get used to seeing everything in block capitals.
