    If those that are typing in ALL CAPS are wondering why so many of their posts are not being posted either at all or in a timely manner, this moderator has either a) stopped reading your posts leaving them to another moderator to moderate, or b) sends the posts to the dustpail without reading them at all.

    A Request to all our friends and commentators: Use “all caps” when you need to emphasize a point as part of an overall statement – DO NOT use “all caps” for the entire post.

    Thank you.

    just a little question- why does it bother you? Whats the difference whether it’s in caps or not?

    For some reason people think you’ll read their post Even More so when they type all in caps, but what they don’t realize is it’s practically illegible, so people don’t bother to even attempt to read it. It also implies shouting (to me at least).

    Because it’s difficult to read and is the equivalent of shouting. It’s also not proper netiquette. In addition, the point you’re trying to make isn’t any more valid because you type it in ALL CAPS.

    YW MODERATOR- How about considering getting another moderater to moderate spelling mistakes? Not the careless ones, those happen when you’re typing quickly and not proofreading. Some mistakes are just so pathetic.

    If YOU don’t have the patience to take the extra 10 seconds it takes to spell check your post, what makes you think we have the patience?

    It would be nice, but we are very picky on who gets to moderate for obvious reasons.

    (Oh and BTW, we do sometimes edit posts for spelling and clarity.)

    MODERATOR- It’s not Davka me. I TRY to proofread, besides if I’m limited in time. But some posts are too ridiculous to post!!! Too bad I guess. Not everyone is good at EVERYTHING!

    YW Moderator – you write that sometimes you edit for spelling and clarity.

    Well, I can only speak for myself, YWModerator-99 (I gave that number to myself).

    I occasionally will edit a post if it is very unclear or needs editing for other reasons. However, you won’t know that as I won’t necessarily write spelling fixed by YWModerator

    So you will never know.

    Why always (subtle) attacks against other individuals?
