Absolutely no offense is intended here, but this is to anyone who types in all caps. It is very difficult to read. It's easier for us to read if you just do all lower case letters. I actually sometimes skip over long posts when they are in all caps because it's so hard for me to read them. I don't understand why...maybe because we're conditioned to recognize a capital letter as the beginning of the word or something. But, PLEASE, just type in lower case.

typing in caps is akin to yelling, or so i was told. ;-)

Whether you're being sincere with all of these typos or not, I'll take this opportunity to promote Mozilla Firefox. Firefox 2 has built-in spell check, in addition to being more secure and feature-rich than Internet Explorer. I recommend it to anybody as an Internet Explorer replacement.

I'll second that, and this is a convenient little free spell check for IE users.

Thank you ma'am for bringing this up.

I typed in all caps so I could see what I was typing. I had an eye injury and have been through 2 surgeries. The latest one 2 weeks ago.

I can now focus much better and I dont have to hurt you men and ladies eyesight with my typing.

I do apologize to all of you who read any of my comments during that time.
Nothing more irritating than a post typed in all caps. It's difficult to read and is considered yelling.

A few words in all caps can help emphasis a meaning, but writing a paragraph or more in all caps is incredibly annoying to read.

Google tool bar has a great spell check feature on it. Plus it has a search tool so you can look things up quicker.

Same here.....i thought caps = emphasis.

WBMC...glad you're doing better since you're surgery.


Thank you ma'am.

My focus is much better but still has a little way to go. I am confident I will get back to nearly 100%, even if it takes corrective lenses.

I am just glad I dont have to offend anyone with my typing anymore and I can see the lower case type.
