PLEASE read the whole thing, and follow the exact instructions I give you in this experiment!

Hello!

I'm here to ask a weird question because curiosity killed the cat:

SHOULD CAPS BE ALLOWED?

Okay, compare these two comments.

Comment 1

Hello, my name is Billy Bob Joe. I want @MobCraft to put me in the Illuminati, and I want @CreativeCoder to say "Hi" to me.

Now, this part is super super SUPER important!! Close comment 1 and THEN open comment 2. This controls your mood in a MAJOR way!!

Comment 2

HELLO, MY NAME IS BILLY BOB JOE! I WANT @MOBCRAFT TO PUT ME IN THE ILLUMINATI, AND I WANT @CREATIVECODER TO SAY HI TO ME!

Do you see the difference? Isn't this giant caps font annoying? This is why I'm asking this question! Also, I want to see how you feel, so please do this:

Don't open this until you read the whole post!!

#When you comment, please make it a giant header like this by putting a # in front of it!

I feel that caps make it seem that people are screaming or yelling. For emphasizing, I suggest people use bold text or italics.

This is on topic as it is about whether caps on the forums should be allowed.
If I see a post using caps in a way to emphasize something, like this:

The snake was REALLY long! And it was FLASHING!

Then that's fine by me. It is used in a way to add emphasis, and isn't particularly distracting or anything.
But, if the post is like this:

THE SNAKE WAS REALLY LONG AND IT WAS FLASHING

Then the caps are unnecessary, and I will edit the post and uncapitalize it.

As for whether you should flag them - I'm not really sure. We don't want the post to be deleted, just corrected. If you see an all caps post, just bring it to me or @t1_hopscotch 's attention, or (and this is the better way because we have to work less xD) just ask the person with the all caps post to correct it.

BECAUSE NO ONE LIKES ALL CAPS
