Yes using caps online is considered shouting.Kicking you out for doing it seems a bit extreme but I am the kind of person that says if you feel like shouting then SHOUT.Why does it matter?Who is it hurting?Who really cares?Just my opinion with my live and let live philosiphy.But what do I know anyway?Hell I thought Micheal Jackson and OJ were both guilty.

Using CAPS will get you banned?

WOW!  I did not know this seeing how I am new to the forum.  But I sure am glad I read this post.  Because often times I will write all my messages in CAPS so that I can see what I am writing due to bad eyesight.  Thanks for the "heads up", from now if my posts come with a lot of typos I am sorry now,   because I can barely read what the !@#$ I am writing.

We got an email around the whole of our company saying the same. CAPITALS = SHOUTING. What a croc of sh**. I think you are right, they are probably just mad cos you took their money. They could have just pointed out the shouting thing and not banned you. Some people are just a-holes.  :)

Using all capital letters has been considered shouting since the early days of the internet.

I can remember back in the day (showing my age here) when I used a Radio Shack Colour Computer someone got on my case about using all caps.  Well, the Colour Computer only typed in caps, so I didn't have any other option.   :lol:

But I remembered that lesson, and I learned proper netiquette by the time I got my first XT.

If you are typing in caps-only due to low vision, just put a disclaimer at the top that says "NOTE: CAPS-ONLY NOT INTENDED TO CONVEY SHOUTING".

Rules do need to be modified to accommodate people with disabilities.
