All capital letters means you are screaming, that is never a positive experience, in my opinion.

Why screaming and not shouting or yelling? Both expressions associated with speech that shall not be infringed.

I really only object to all caps when it is used for the whole post, letter or whatever. If your paragraph is all c&lc you can emphasize with the use of caps. For instance, if you are writing to your child you might want to use caps for WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO GROW UP?
