ALL-CAPS FOR THREAD TITLES, GOOD OR BAD ETIQUETTE?
 
As the title implies....

Is the use of ALL-CAPS in a thread title good or bad etiquette?

:lol::lol: Iím going to say that it depends on the severity of the situation or desperation involved.

Well, for some, that may be quite frequent.

****ing annoying should be an option.

It's been demonstrated many times that ALL CAPS are (a) harder to read (b) slower to read (c) easier to misunderstand.

If you're trying to scan the topics for "interesting" threads, all caps will slow you down.

BAD IDEA.

The reason all caps is hard to read is that in caps and lower case (I can also tell you why it is called that) the ascenders (b,d, f, h, i, j, k, l, t) and descenders (g, j, p, q, and y) help form word images that can be speed read. All caps just gives you blocks of type that have to be examined closer. I don't mind a short title being in all caps but text should never be all caps. I do agree with Dick that since thread titles are usually a synopsis of the content (my edit) it is better for them to be c & l c.

Over 89,000 members and one schmuck is worried about using capitals. Pretty good indication he never got laid.

I think the OP needs to get back on his meds. Or how about a ban on stupid memes, that would put an end to his entire existence.


I get confused by the use of caps in the beginning and end of a username.
