Yes, from all the replies/bitching about the posting in upper case.

Not sure about the capital letters, but improper use of a comma will get you a 5-yard penalty.

No, but it will inspire a lot of flames to be thrown your way.

Maybe not, but it adds pixels to the environment. Pixels cause global warming.

I just need a little help. We've got a couple of guys who insist on posting in all caps, on a hunting forum where I'm one of the mods.

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

Creepy. That guy looks like the VA Tech shooter.

Am I being politically incorrect in making that observation?

No--each letter or number, capitalized or lower case, has the same number of bits to the ASCI byte that makes up that letter or number.

BUT IT'S ANNOYING TO READ ALL CAPS AND IT SEEMS LIKE A PERSON IS ANGRY WHEN HE/SHE USES ALL UPPERCASE.

Hmph!

While I know NOTHING about the caps thing...I do recall (I think) someone “high up” here, one time, say that even pics don’t use up more bandwidth as far as this forum goes.

I think.

Who knows.

I’m old.

And you didn’t start a problem...this is going to be a fun thread....and maybe a mod will answer you?

No, of course not. Whether uppercase or lowercase, each ASCII letter is the same byte size.
