[All Caps On] Would you think this is somehow a more captivating question than others'? [All Caps Off]?

Asked by rebbel (31421points) July 23rd, 2018

WOULD YOU THINK THIS IS SOMEHOW A MORE CAPTIVATING QUESTION THAN OTHERS’?

Or would you think that I should tone it down a bit?
Or what the heck is his problem?
Or that I’m a toddler, or an angry teen?
Or a troll?
Or a president?

And, suppose a president used all caps to threaten an other nation; how would he/she go about tweeting a nation or a leader the next time, when he/she has already used all caps, but he/she wants to make clear the threat is now even more urgent?

@Mimishu1995 GREAT…, I HADN’T THOUGHT OF THE POSSIBILITY THAT THIS COULD POTENTIALLY TURN OUT TO BE A THREAD WITH ALL ALL CAPS ANSWERS…

BY THE WAY, YOU MIGHT HAVE A POINT THERE.

You are forgetting the two Trump rules:

1) Everything Donald Trump says is a lie. Everything.

2) The louder he shouts, the more of a lie it is.

You think it might be deflection??

@rebbel Deflection, and a way to boost oil prices. Trump wants oil prices high to keep his backers happy.

I would think that you were yelling. I hate all caps.

All caps is easier for people who are dyslexic because there are no mirror image letters. If you were just to say at the beginning why you’re writing in all caps, I would hope that everybody here would be fine with it.

In addition, roadsigns and advertising is mostly done in all caps. So it does have a place in society.

In general, I would think the writer was clamoring for attention. Same for lots of !!!!s and LOLs and other special effects. And yes, I’d want them to tone it down. Otherwise I’d just start ignoring them.

But if it were you, friend @rebbel, I wouldn’t make such an assumption. Instead I would think you were making a point or setting up a joke or otherwise up to something.

Someone with very little brain, or education, screaming for attention.
