First I better make it clear that I don't intend to criticize anyone. I honestly wonder why some people prefer to write e-mails and messages in all caps. There must be some reason, since people everywhere on the educational ladder do. I FIND TEXT LIKE THIS DIFFICULT TO READ BUT MAYBE THAT IS NOT UNIVERSAL?
All Caps is normally someone yelling, so it's kind of uncomfortable for me to read some messages in all-caps (Caps On).
If the person is new to Internet messaging (via usenet forums or e-mail), that person likely is unaware of the "All-Caps = Yelling" netiquette, and may prefer to type off-line documents (like word processor docs) with Caps Lock on.
