Is it true what they say about the size of a man's font?

You mean the one about "It's not the size of the pen you use, but how you sign your name?"

Serious response: your hunter friends are probably lazy. They don’t want to worry about capitalizing, ever, like when teens text each other. I think you should ban the use of all caps on your forum, because it is far harder to read.

And realize that simple questions on FR are soft pitch “straight lines” to all of the FReepers not currently offered lucrative comedy shows on the Vegas Strip. It’s just a way to have fun. Enjoy.

So what do I do? Turn the laptop upside down to type??

Do you realize how hard that’ll be when I’m using the PC and NOT the laptop?

Come on now! :)

The Mods are off today (no puns about always being off) so I’m going to fill in for them. Here goes!

Yes, you do need a little help and that’s just what you’re going to get... a little help, very little and worth every penny!

Just turn the monitor off while you type and the whole question will resolve its self like globular worming.

Whoops! One of the Mods just came in.. gotta go..bye.

Don’t stress, it just gives the denizens something to amuse themselves with on a slow news day. Much like when John Mark Carr was identified in Thailand and everybody repeated “Thailand?” and it went into Freeper legend.

Don’t worry.....it’s my turn. Now they’re picking on me w/the upside down font.

I agree with Yaelle....tell them to knock it off, turn OFF that feature on your forum...however you do it. It IS hard to read!!!

If I've started a problem, then I ask the mod’s to lock this thread.

Oh, sure, get us all started, and then take your ball and go home?

I THINK NOT!

Plus aren't we on this thread to try and save JimRob some extra money?? Aren't we SAVING THE PLANET HERE?? Do you have a CLUE how many carbon pixels we could have wasted, had this topic not come up?? What, do you want our East Coast FRiends to have worse blizzards than they already have?? ;)

Carbon offsets were purchased from Goreco.com for each capitalization used in this post.

It would but you can continue to use Caps even in Bold as long as you post in invisibility font. For example, I'm going to post the entire Constitution of the United States in Caps, Bold and Font size of 24. But utilizing the invisibility font, there will not be be any more bandwidth used than if you were to post another nonsensical thread such as this. OK, here we go:

See? What did I tell you?

So, If you're concerned about bandwidth on your future thread postings such as this one, I would suggest you use the Invisibility font...........

"So what do I do? Turn the laptop upside down to type??"   Actually, turning your laptop upside down and after going into something like "character map" that shows all the possible characters in a given font/code page will give you a real big hint.

Yes, it does use more bandwidth but you can make up the difference by omitting the spaces between your words and don't use paragraph or line breaks.
