No capitals for titles and paragraphs of text please

Post by Jim »

All,

I refer you to the Forum Decorum topic:

http://www.nineeleven.co.uk/board/viewtopic.php?t=926

... and the addition of item (5) - No caps for titles and paragraphs of text.

Please abide by these simple and fair rules.

Titles will be changed to lower case and abuse will possibly lead to locked topics, deletion and/or banning.

Is there a practical reason for 'no upper case HEADERS'?

Sometimes you have to SHOUT to get heard!

No shouting allowed! It's common practice on BBs.

I have got no objection to anybody using any type face they like

Why don't you start a poll to see if you or TTWSU3 should be banned.

Is this serious? No shouting is aloud? Pardon me for stating the obvious but this new rule seems petty and entirely pointless.

That's one of the most bizarre rules that I've ever seen at a forum. No caps in headings or text? They way it's described at first I thought it meant that you can't even properly punctuate by capitalizing the first letter of a sentence. Now I understand that typing all text in caps is perceived as "yelling". Now I’ve heard it all.

Would this be considered whispering?

I find this kind of deliberate sexist insult far more offensive than the use of capital letters.

BB & TTWSU3,

Late reply but it seems worth the effort.

You both obviously have not heard of Netiquette or Forum etiquette:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netiquette#Forum_etiquette

If everybody shouts, nobody gets heard ... and, although you may not currently realise it, it makes you look like complete idiots. GWTFP.

I appreciate BB's comments relating to his acceptance of both my male and female aspects and the fact that I occasionally indulge myself. Ta.
